This sounds so very interesting a read, Danielle. I'm not familiar with Gabrielle Roy, but now I think I will be. What a wonderful review.


I like the sound of this one very much. Nancy Huston id one of the few French Canadian authors I know and I'm very keen on discovering another one. I'll have to see if I can find her on amazon fr.
Thanks for a wonderful review.


I only very recently discovered her as well and like her writing style very much. Of course now I'm interested in reading more about that part of the world and have even found a mystery set in the Arctic Circle as well.


My library has a lot of Nancy Huston's books--most of them in French as we have a faculty member who does a lot of research in that area of literature. I've been meaning to read one of her books as we do have a couple in English. Hopefully you can find Gabrielle Roy fairly easily--she has a number of books and I hope to read another soon.


Oh what a sad story! Good, but sad.


Exactly so. It's a great story and would be a great one to discuss. I can't wait to read more of her work now.


How interesting! I have a Gabrielle Roy story in French (can't recall which one, not this one, though, I'm pretty sure) and wondered what she would be like. I've been dreadful at reading in French this year, but maybe I should try the Roy novel I own in 2013? I do like the sound of this one very much.


I really like her and am looking forward to reading more. Windflower was really good, but I expect her others will be even better. I would love to know what you make of her work. I have already started acquiring more of her books.... :)
