Arrivés du Béarn, Julien, Catherine, TiPierre et leurs parents débarquent à Port-Royal au printemps 1695. Chacun des enfants va suivre son chemin dans les tumultes de cette France lointaine convoitée par les Anglais. Julien se fond dans le monde sauvage des chasseurs et des Indiens ; Catherine vit des amours passionnées ; Pierre, lui, devient uncorsaire redouté. Leur destin, ainsi que celui de leurs enfants et petits- enfants, sera des plus mouvementés : découverte d'un nouveau monde, passions, mariages et trahisons, exode, lutte acharnée contre les Anglais ou entente avec eux. Tous ont néanmoins ceci en commun : l'esprit conquérant, l'amour viscéral porté à leur nouvelle patrie et la douleur de l'exil, inévitable tragédie à venir... Alain Dubos rend un hommage bouleversant à ces « cousins d'Amérique », ces Acadiens sacrifiés, à leur combat pour leur survie età leur singularité aujourd'hui ressuscitée." (from the back cover).

"No Clouds of Glory" was republished in 1974 under the title "Sarah Bastard's Notebook" (PaperJacks). "The thirtieth year, a milestone often dreaded by the young, can prove to be one of life's turning points, and so it is for Sarah Porlock, Ph.D., the tough-minded, angry, witty, intelligent heroine of a novel that establishes Marian Engel as an uncommonly gifted writer. Sarah, no virgin but defiantly unmarried, recently bereaved in more ways than opne, and unjustly held up to ridicule in an obnoxious newspaper interview, is shocked into seeing that her life is a mess; and with generally amusing results she sets out to discover how it got that way. Through an intricate and subtly shiftingpattern of time sequences, the reader comes to know Sarah as intimately as she knows herself. There are glimpses of her Canadian childhood -- with pa rticular emphasis on Leah, the beautiful youngest of her three sisters -- and of her adult life in Toronto, where she teaches English literature and lodges on 'a casebook street in the history of urban decay'. But the greaterpart of the story she sets down takes place in France and Italy and among the Greek islands, and concerns her two affairs: the muted one with Joe, a sad and gentle journalist whose wife has proved to be a heroin addict; and the overwelming one with Sandro, a masterful Venetian engineer who happens to be Leah's husband." - from the not-present with this copy dustjacket.
