Description

In this true story Armande Martel, a young nun from Quebec, is arrested by the Germans in 1940 during a stay at her religious order's mother house in Brittany. After the war, she leaves the religious life, finds the love of her life in Montreal, and adopts Lise Dion.

Growing up, Lise is familiar with a few facts of her mother's early life. It's when she is clearing her mother's small apartment after her death that Lise Dion discovers the key to the blue trunk, which was always locked. The key unlocks the mystery of Armande's early life, and so Lise decides to write The Secret of the Blue Trunk.
