As Julien seeks liberation in Paris, he is haunted by the memories of a fateful autumn on the banks of the Duchesnay River near Quebec City. Until then, his reclusive childhood had been centered on his protective mother, Pauline, and his sister, Hélène. A wild and beautiful young woman captivates both Julien and Hélène. She promises them freedom, but her reckless urgings turn ecstasy and seduction into bitter tragedy.

Independent Publishing Group
"Julien is captivated by a beautiful young woman, and his yearning for freedom from his protective mother turns into tragedy. This poetic and haunting novel won the Governor General's Award for French Fiction in 1992."
