CAROLINE CHISHOLM - THE EMIGRANT'S FRIEND. £9.99p,
The story of Australia's national heroine, Caroline
Chisholm, who championed the cause of the early settlers,
carved out new routes into the bush, helped to re-unite
families separated by cruel transportation policies, and
established Australia as a nation offering hope and prosperity
for newcomers. This is the only book published in Britain
about Mrs Chisholm, whose home in London carries a blue
plaque and who is honoured in her native Northampton,
but has been too often neglected by British historians,
although she is a household name in Australia. A heart-warming
story of courage, faith, and family life. Joanna Bogle
has also become a popular speaker on this subject at women's
groups across Britain and Australia.

and chastity. £1.95p from CTS.

booklet to challenge comfortable thinking and a reminder
of the cost of conscience. Ideal for school discussion
groups, Confirmation classes etc. £1.95p from CTS.
