Another novel that you might like to read in the context of the 150th anniversary of the arrival of the Good Shepherd nuns in Victoria on 24 June 1863 is Maureen McCarthy’s The Convent published by Allen & Unwin in late 2012.  This is a work of fiction and imagination, as is the Kerry Greenwood title in the previous post, but does draw on the place and the history of the convent and the site and is a good read too.
