Connolly, Peter K. When Shadows Fell at Notre Dame (New York: iUniverse, c2007) 187 p.
Barbara McCaffrey worked as a librarian at this great university in Indiana until 1946. After being fired for not fitting in she now works at the county library. She is 37 and attractive. She is working on a scheme to embarrass the university. She tells a young student,

First of all, not all librarians, female librarians, can always find solace and satisfaction from a good book and a hot cup of tea. That's Agatha Christie stuff. Some, like me, need physical gratification as well.” (p. 62).

She was fired by Father Thomas Quinn, the Director of the Archives. He is “a short, jovial, middle-aged priest.” (p. 40).
