"By examining the central role played by Protestant and Catholic women in establishing the religious faith of their children and, by extension, the future of their respective communities, Labour, Love, and Prayer explores the construction of female stereotypes during a period of mounting religious tension in Ireland. Andrea Ebel Brozyna compares ideas of faith and family in both cultures, highlighting the remarkable similarities in their views and each group's stubborn refusal to acknowledge them." "An interesting new look at the Irish problem, Labour, Love, and Prayer makes a valuable contribution to the histories of women, Ireland, and religion."--Jacket.
