About Book

Book Description
After spending two or three very agreeable days here with a party of friends in exploring the beauties of the Island and dropping a tender tear at Carisbrook Castle on the memory of the unfortunate Charles the First I am just setting out for America on a scheme I once hinted to you of settling the lands to which I have a right as a lieutenant-colonel on half pay.' (Excerpt from Letter1)

Inside Flap Copy
This charming love story captures the lives of Quebec City?s early English-speaking inhabitants, the Québécois, and the Native people, in the decade between Wolfe?s victory on the Plains of Abraham in 1759 and the American War of Independence in the 1770s.

First published in 1769, The History of Emily Montague, which brings the 18th-century novel into a New World context, is rightly called Canada?s ? indeed North America?s ? first novel.
