Challenged Works

Such Is My Beloved

By Morley Callaghan

Set in the 1930s, this novel tells the story of a young Roman Catholic priest who tries to persuade two women to abandon their lives as prostitutes.


In 1972, two Christian ministers tried to get this novel removed from a high school in Huntsville, Ont. The ministers objected to the novel’s depiction of prostitution and the use of “strong language.”
