about

George and Catherine Stewart share not only the burden of Catherine's heart disease, which could cause her death at any time, but the memory of Jerome Martell, her first husband and George's closest friend. Martel, a brilliant doctor passionately concerned with social justice, is presumed to have died in a Nazi prison camp. His sudden return to Montreal precipitates the central crisis of the novel. Hugh MacLennan takes the reader into the lives of his three characters and back into the world of Montreal in the thirties, when politics could send an idealist across the world to Spain, France, Auschwitz, Russia, and China before his return home.
Born in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, Hugh MacLennan (1907-1990) taught at McGill University from 1951 to 1981 and wrote novels and essays that helped define Canadian literature. His novels include Barometer Rising (1941), Two Solitudes (1945), Each Man's Son (

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A book that I can always come back to. This novel was first introduced to me in a grade 11 Canadian Literature class. It was after all of these years, the 1 thing that I can remember of high school. This is my favourite book. I do advise readers to go 3 chapters in. This book is from an a time I can not imagine for myself. It is about generations past, and they are brought to a vivid life.
