Aunts & Windmills

Bridget Williams Books

In this charming book, Pauline O’Regan, the author of A Changing Order, turns her characteristic warmth and wit onto the world of her childhood.

Accounts of climbing windmills and other adventures growing up in a West Coast farming community are interspersed with meditations on the religious faith that led her to become an activist nun working in the Christchurch community. By turns exuberant and contemplative, it paints a touching portrait of a child discovering the delights of life and the mysteries of adulthood.
