A captivating account of the life and witness of two great Canadians.

Georges and Pauline Vanier were the parents of Jean Vanier, the cofounder of the L'Arche communities. Georges was the first French Canadian governor general of Canada and Pauline was the first non-political woman to be appointed to the Queen's Privy Council for Canada. They lived an intensely spiritual life, influenced mainly by the Carmelite tradition. Georges and Pauline Vanier: Mercy within Mercy is the warmly told story of their life together through World War II and the second half of the twentieth century, drawing on many letters and journals by Georges and Pauline themselves and those closest to them.
