  1. How lovely Charlotte! I really enjoyed your story of Sister Maria. I totally understand how you must treasure the small photo on your dressing table and also the photo of this wonderful woman. Beautiful lace too!

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed hearing about her, she was a favourite of my mother. We were so lucky to be welcomed to the convent when we visited.

    • Thank you Fleur. Yes, isn’t the lace magnificent! I have a tiny square which I think she gave my mother, which I treasure

    • Thanks Jill. I agree – it’s so easy to overlook the rich details of life in a convent when we’re researching the women of our family.

  2. Thank you very much dear Char for this wonderful story and family history information of our Great Aunty Rosina. (I am Charlotte’s first cousin. Char’s mother and my father were siblings).
