Ever Yours Affly, John Henry Newman and his Female Circle, by Joyce Sugg
Ever Yours Affly, John Henry Newman and his Female Circle, by Joyce Sugg. The intellectual Newman often overshadows the more personal and intimate nature of the man as exemplified in this account of his friendship with a great many women. Though mostly unknown now their lives were of great interest to Newman who produced over the years a lively, compassionate and practical correspondence which not only throws light on his own character but also illuminates the lives of these women. 336 pages.
