Who are “The Ladies of Loretto”? They are, or rather, were the students attending Loretto College School (Brunswick) back in the early 1960’s, specifically 1960 – 1965. One of them, Heidi, the narrator, didn’t feel or think like a lady, and sometimes neither did the other students.
Join Viga Boland, author of “No Tears for my Father” and “Learning to Love Myself” as she shares her memories of the happy, the sad, the good, the bad of trying to become a “Lady of Loretto”. Travel back to when the Russians sent a dog into space, the “Mashed Potato” was a dance, “The Twist” was a sin, the Beatles were just getting started, JFK’s assassination rocked America and there was no such thing as “sex-ed”, cell-phones or iPads!
“This book is timeless – I made several connections to it and our girls today could learn about their history and would definitely be able to relate. This book will definitely be a resource that I will share with the current and future Ladies of Loretto.” Judy Pedrosa, English Department, Loretto College School, 2015
