The History of Emily Montague (New Canadian Library)

The History of Emily Montague (New Canadian Library) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This charming love story captures the lives of Quebec Citys early English-speaking inhabitants, the Québécois, and the Native people, in the decade between Wolfes victory on the Plains of Abraham in 1759 and the American War of Independence in the 1770s.

First published in 1769, The History of Emily Montague, which brings the 18th-century novel into a New World context, is rightly called Canadas - indeed North Americas - first novel.
