Woodward," The New York Times Book Review""In a book as sweeping as its title, John J. Fialka lays out the major role of Catholic nuns in the building of our nation."---"Providence Journal""("Sisters "is a) well sourced and often sparkling narrative about legions of spirited and spiritual Catholic sisters."---"Washington Post"
