The Red Dress

Mary Ann Mulhern spent eight years in convent. She entered a few years after teachers’ college. As a young teacher, she enjoyed wearing rich colors, especially red. When she returned to teaching in Windsor, Ontario, wearing a religious habit, children often asked if she could wear color, “just for one day?” This became the basis for this all-revealing book about the life of a single woman who enters the convent and watches her life become transformed by the strict rules of the church and her religious order.
