The lives and loves of early Canadian settlers are captured through their letters. At a time of relative peace—after General Wolfe’s victory on the Plains of Abraham and before the American War of Independence—Miss Emily Montague and her acquaintances discuss their lives, the happenings of their town, and express their affections for each other in their written correspondence.
Recognized as the first Canadian novel, The History of Emily Montague was first published in 1769, following author Frances Brooke’s extended visit to what at that time was the colony of Quebec City.
