Antoinette de Mirecourt, Or, Secret Marrying and Secret Sorrowing: A Canadian Tale
McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP, 1989 - Literary Criticism - 274 pages
A moral exemplum about courtship and marriage, this "essentially Canadian" tale, which takes place in the 1760s, reflects its author's profound and sometimes disturbing knowledge of the bicultural and bilingual society in which she lived.
