The story moves across rural Quebec, Montreal, and Toronto.</p><p>The protagonists: a young teacher (francophone) falls in love with a beautiful young woman (Anglophone). She is a talented young lawyer moving on with her successful career with a big law firm in Montreal. Her wealthy family (of Montreal’s Westmount and Toronto’s Rosedale) are against this love-match.</p><p>The story follows the young couple’s dilemma, heartbreaks, and inner struggles as they fight to see their mutual love through—a contemporary Romeo and Juliet story set in a historical context!
