MetadataShow full item record
Irene McCormack was a Josephite nun working in a mountain village of Peru when she was executed, along with 4 local men, by Shining Path terrorists in May 1991. A decade after the event, Henderson became interested in her when it appeared she was being passed over for Pope John Paul’s list of martyrs of the twentieth century. She decided to try and find out why. Her quest took her to friends, relations and colleagues of Sister McCormack all over Australia, and to Peru, the scene of the crime.
