About This Item

Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, November 1989. Paperback. 1991 reprint. Near Fine. Dust stains to top edge. Text unmarked. Spine straight, tight, and uncreased. Light rubbing to covers. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. 235 pages.

Penelope Wain believes that her lover, Neil Macrae, has been killed while serving overseas under her father. That he died apparently in disgrace does not alter her love for him, even though her father is insistent on his guilt. What neither Penelope or her father knows is that Neil is not dead, but has returned to Halifax to clear his name. Hugh MacLennan's first novel is a compelling romance set against the horrors of wartime and the catastrophic Halifax Explosion of December 6, 1917.

Authors: Hugh Maclennan; Alister Macleod (afterward)

Synopsis

A major 20th century Canadian author, Hugh MacLennan was born in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, in 1907. His seven novels and many essays and travel books present a chronicle of Canada that often mediates between the old world of its European cultural heritage and the new world of American vitality and materialism. Among his many honours, he won five Governor General’s Awards. Hugh MacLennan died in Montreal in 1990.
