New Shaftesbury Abbey Book Tells The Nuns’ Stories

A new book on Shaftesbury Abbey will focus on the stories of the nuns who lived there.

William Smith has pieced together information contained in hundreds of documents to present a full a picture of the women who lived in the abbey between 888 and 1539.

William says ‘Hidden Lives: The Nuns of Shaftesbury’ will complement a previously released book on the Abbey, ‘A Higher Reality’, which was produced by the same publisher.
