Summary
In 1924, George Bernard Shaw was introduced to Dame Laurentia McLachlan, a Benedictine nun at the Stanbrook Abbey in Worcestershire, England. Along with their mutual friend, Sydney Cockerell, director of Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge, the trio enjoyed twenty-five years of letters, literary debate and laughter. Relive their vigorous discussions on everything from the existence of God, to the finer points of tango dancing
