Description

To the intense distress of her family, Antoinette de Mirecourt falls in love with an English officer, and the love affair becomes an inescapable mirror of the tensions between French and English as they struggle towards amicable coexistence. Set primarily in Montreal, the novel provides an unmatched portrait of Quebec in the late eighteenth century.

First published in 1864, Antoinette de Mirecourt is an evocative romance of manners and morals. The New Canadian Library edition is an unabridged reprint of the complete original text.
