The History of Emily Montague by Frances Brooke (New Canadian Library N27) front coverSeries Two

From the Back Cover:

Set in Quebec City immediately after Wolfe’s conquest, this charming love story depicts in intimate detail the life of that city’s early English inhabitants. It is a comedy of manners played against a backdrop of the rugged scenery of the New World, a world in which wit and elegance are combined with “much hospitality, scandal, dancing, and good cheer.” The dramatic strength of this novel springs from the author’s very personal and lively portrayal of the social life of the times, into which the intricate and often amusing involvement of three pairs of lovers are delightfully interwoven.
