1975 – love and religiosity collide ... Martin and Maria get in each other’s way on a New Zealand street crossing. They fall in love. He’s 23. She’s 17. Her Catholic family of academics, lawyers, doctors – and a priest – object. Martin’s not a Catholic. Maria is not an obvious rebel. She is her school’s top scholar, expected to be an example to all the girls. She observes her Church’s laws and customs, attends Mass, recites her rosaries. Backed into a corner Maria defies her family and her Church’s laws. The religious and judgmental attitudes of others serve to bind Martin and Maria closer. Her brother the priest waits in his confessional to absolve her of her ‘sin’. But what is her ‘sin’? Maria pays a heavy price. Only in 2013 is an injustice put right.

About the Author:

Paul Corrigan is a New Zealander. He is a grandson of Catholic immigrants from Roscommon, Ireland. They were farmers. Relatives include priests and nuns. His mother’s people were English. In his orchard of family trees one features Church of England vicars and deans. Other, perhaps luckier forebears were Yeoman Grooms of the Wine-Cellar to Kings James I, Charles I, Charles II, and James II. Another fruit of that particular tree – Landon of Monnington and Credenhill, County Hereford – was the 19th century English poet and novelist Letitia Elizabeth Landon, better known by her initials L. E. L. She died in Accra, in what is now Ghana, in 1838. She was 36. Maria Goretti and Me is Paul’s debut published novel. Paul has been a journalist and full-time solo parent of his two daughters and son.
