• Maria Chapdelaine

Hailed as one of the best and most lasting pieces of French Canadian fiction, this novel is a profoundly moving tale of life in Northern Quebec around the turn of the 19th century.

Like the author's character, it is a story of simple habits and devotion to duty, to tradition, to the Church and to God; beautifully ideal and yet absolutely natural. It is a story of true family love, hardship, prayer, and a sheer will to survive in a wild land; the everlasting struggle against a relentless nature.

The pervading sub-story is that of Maria, a beautiful Catholic girl who reaches the age of marriage. She has the choice of three prospective husbands, one of which offers her a comfortable life in an American city. But Maria's attachment to the land and her people is strong, and when Fate further intervenes, Maria (a noble and worthy young lady) follows her head and not her heart.

An extraordinary story of virtue for today's youth.
