WOMAN TO WOMAN by Katherine Burton


Email this review


In Woman to Woman, also the title of her popular page in the national Catholic magazine Sign, Katherine Burton offers a compilation of many of her best columns over twenty years. The subjects, which generally have a quality of timelessness, are grouped under the headings ""Thoughts About People"", ""As the Twig Is Bent"", ""All Manner of Women"", ""Lovely Home -- No Children"", ""Listen Father"", ""The Rolling Years"", ""War and Peace"", ""The Lively Arts"", and ""On the Side of the Angels"" Thoughts explored vary from intolerance to defense of the clergy, modern art, the League of Women Voters, single women, children at mass, women's magazines, planned parenthood, the Union of the Sick, Theology for Everyone and the Jungle and Mrs. Luce -- to recall a wide sampling. It is to Mrs. Burton's credit that she conveys the deep feelings and convictions she holds on so many subjects without becoming pedantic or dull. There is food for thought and further meditation here whether the reader is an old fan of Mrs. Burton's, or gets to know her through this book. Father Ralph Gorman, C.P., editor of Sign, contributes the foreword.
