Summary
""Women with a mission" rediscovers the lives of four key missionary women in nineteenth century New Zealand. The public and private lives of Charlotte Brown, Anne Wilson, Elizabeth Colenso and Kate Hadfield are brought into fresh historical focus, examining the part they played in shaping nineteenth century life in New Zealand. These women were just as significant as their better known husbands. They were teachers, upholders of the faith and heavily involved in the Church Missionary Society's work with Maori. They were also the core of their families and very much a part of the wider community. We see that these were strong women, each with their own vocation, who stood up for their beliefs, sometimes in the public arena. They often dealt with personal tragedies and setbacks in isolated circumstances. Dr Cathy Ross, a mission historian, draws on their letters, journals and diaries to show these pioneering women were more than wives." -- Back cover
