In celebration of Australia’s first Saint, Mary MacKillop we are giving away a copy of Pamela Freeman’s award-winning book The Black Dress.
The Black Dress is the incredible story of Mary MacKillop – an unconventional young woman born into a time and a religion bound by convention.
What Mary did with her life would change the course of Australia’s history. The Age calls it “credible and compelling”, and Good Reading says that The Black Dress is “a book steeped in Australian and family history, filled with poetic descriptions and emotive language in a tender and moving narrative.”
If you would like to win a copy of this phenomenal book, simply tell us in the comments who your favourite saint is, and why.
The person with the best comment will be chosen as the winner on Monday 25th of October, so get commenting!
Sorry this competition is open to Australian residents only.
