'This book has a twofold meaning,' writes the author, '— that of a political novel, and that of the portrayal of a great love and a religious drama.' One of the most interesting Canadian novels of the period 1880 to 1920, it depicts conditions in Canada during an era when the country was in a state of transition,' that is, prior to the last election during John A. Macdonald's administration.
