The Woman Who Was Chesterton: An Interview with Nancy C. Brown

Today on the Catholic Exchange Podcast, Michael talks to Nancy C. Brown about Frances Chesterton, the wife and muse of the great Catholic author GK Chesterton. We discuss how their endearing love for one another enabled them to pursue their vocations and endure the difficulties of married life, even when they bore the weight of being unable to have children. Nancy paints a powerful picture of a loving, Christ-centered family who took their struggles and turned them into a love that is still inspiring and has much to teach us in our own time.
