The intellectual Newman often over-shadows the more personal and intimate nature of the mas as exemplified in this account of his frienships with a great number of women. Though mostly unknown now, their lives were of great interest to Newman who produced over the years a lively, compassionate and practical correspondence which not only throws new light on his own character but also illuminates the loves of these women. At a time when intelligent women faced a struggle to exxpress themselves and be heard, Newman provided a sympathetic ear and an encouraging voice in letters that are deeply affecting and full of wise counsel.
