Description

Crossing to Tadoussac is a novel about a woman coming of age in Quebec during the years of the Quiet Revolution. With the political turmoil in the province mirroring the psychological conflict in her person, our heroine finds herself searching for the balance of freedom and liberation in her own life and person, while witnessing this same internal struggle reproduced in the conflict of her people coming to maturity and seizing their place in the world. She quickly understands that to realize her personal emancipation, she must join the chorus of the crowd that she hears manifesting on the streets. At first, she idealizes the leaders of the movement, and then slowly returns to a more pragmatic and realistic view of the group, as she matures and the novel progresses in time. A sensitive and realistic portrait, Crossing to Tadoussac evokes the experience of being a Quebecker in the reader, awakening the historical and spiritual struggles that have formed the province and its people.
