Frances 'Fanny' Taylor (1832-1900) was an English-born convert to Catholicism who founded the congregation of the Poor Servants of the Mother of God (SMG), taking the name Mother Mary Magdalen. She was also a prolific writer and publisher. Mary McAuliffe lectures in Women's Studies at University College Dublin and is currently President of the Women's History Association of Ireland (WHAI).Review:
'As well as the attraction that this book will hold for those with an interest in Frances Taylor, the history of active religious orders, and social care in the Nineteenth Century, Irish Homes and Irish Hearts is an absorbing and enjoyable read. The most appealing element of the text is Taylor's idiosyncratic narrative voice, which is here at its most passionate, opinionated and entertaining ... it is this readable style, highly rendered detail and engagement with contemporary political issues which make Irish Homes and Irish Hearts a fascinating snapshot of Irish religious life and social care in nineteenth-century Ireland.' Kate Harper, University of York, The History of Women Religious of Britain and Ireland, July 2015
