Lambs of God : Foxtel Craig Mathieson , 2019 single work review
— Appears in: The Monthly , September no. 159 2019; (p. 63)

— Review of Lambs of God Sarah Lambert , 2019 series - publisher film/TV
'The crumbling monastery that is the setting for Lambs of God, a rich and dexterous new Australian limited series, is many things. At first glance the cliffside 19th-century construction is a refuge for the remnants of Sisters of St Agnes, an enclosed order forgotten by the outside world that has dwindled to just three nuns. But the cloistered, near medieval isolation is also an incubator, revealing what faith can be when a structure evolves without a male hierarchy. When these women invoke the “mother of mercy”, it’s a radical act of spiritual self-sufficiency' (Introduction)

'Adaptation of Marele Day’s novel is a gothic, grisly and deliriously compelling view of cynical, contemporary Catholicism.'
