Forty Years Late book cover by Marie Corbett

FORTY YEARS LATE:  Forty Years Late written by the late Doris Corbett was published by Marie Corbett and tells the true story of their grandmother, Teresa Ghaney Corbett. It is the story of a courageous woman’s stand against the tyranny of Father Casey, a priest in the Roman Catholic village of Conception Harbour, Newfoundland.

Marie’s note: A lifelong student and teach of history, Doris called herself, not ‘historian,’ but ‘memorizer,’ a person who remembers and passes on the elemental experiences of women. Doris taught me that we must pass down our stories. Too little of history is about the reality of women’s lives; too much of “women’s stuff” has been discarded. Her commitment to speaking our truth has inspired me to publish this book.
