Editorial Reviews

"A good, solid novel, something rich and important.... "That's what the American novelist Elizabeth Spencer had to say about the book. Wrote The Globe and Mail in its review: "Keith Henderson knows most intimately those parts of the anglo-Quebec community who have been most abused by recent Canadian history, the marginal middle class citizenry of places like Roxboro." As Canada grapples with the current instalment of its lingering cultural and constitutional crisis, The Restoration adds a special and indispensible dimension to the national political discourse.
