They Called Us "Les Filles du Roy"

Top of page

Under cover of a love letter, this is an impressionistic history of the women of Québec down through the ages: the Indian, the fille du Roy, the nun, the settler's wife, the soldier's wife, and, finally, today's woman, who examines her traditional role as mother and wife, and contrasts it with her new place in the labour force. The couple, and the difficulties involved in being a couple, are touched upon with great tenderness.
