This is an auction for MARY POTTER'S LITTLE COMPANY OF MARY: THE NEW ZEALAND EXPERIENCE, 1914-2002, by Anne Trotter.

"Mary Potter’s Little Company of Mary tells the fascinating story of a religious order founded in the nineteenth century by an Englishwoman, Mary Potter, for the care of the sick and dying. Mary Potter’s life reflects the struggle of women to assert their rights to be agents of social or religious change and she can be grouped with other women reformers of the nineteenth century such as Florence Nightingale and Josephine Butler. Arriving in New Zealand in 1914 the Sisters, all trained nurses and affectionately known as the ‘Blue Nuns’, set new standards for nursing and medical care over the next fifty years. The women of the Little Company of Mary have lived through remarkable changes within the Church, in their religious life, in medicine, in the delivery of hospital services and in their roles as members of a nursing religious order. Ann Trotter follows these momentous changes through the 20th century to tell the story of an extraordinary group of women. Today, the Sisters who have survived these radical changes are to be found, strong in spirit, in Christchurch, Palmerston ?North and Tonga, where they are involved in pastoral care, home and hospital visiting, parish and social work. Their outlook is optimistic and one of hope. The legacy of the Little Company of Mary is apparent throughout New Zealand’s healthcare system."
