“I was taken with this story within the first few pages. Reminiscent of the works of Barbara Kingsolver, Proulx artfully weaves the natural life of the Canadian Laurentians into the lives of her disparate characters. The result is a rich tapestry of story and setting that I won’t soon forget.”

“Monique Proulx has created a magical universe in the forest, peopled by characters with whom the reader will have deep sympathy. And in translation, I did not know that I was reading a novel originally written in French. Now, if only I could compare it to the original—but I can’t. So thanks to Douglas and McIntyre in helping me out of my linguistic conundrum.”

“Proulx’s writing has a rhythm that mimics nature itself – sometimes necessarily harsh, at times calm and peaceful, but mostly forgiving and beautiful.”

“This is a wonderful and beautiful story with the Canadian theme of Man and Wilderness. It deals with life and death, the meaning of being human, the reality of being part of the natural world.”

“[Monique] has chosen here to venture outside her usual urban settings, to confront the intoxicating, dizzyingly full-of-life region we call, with so little hope of possessing it, Nature.”
