Shadows on the Rock by Willa Cather
Set in the early 18th century, this fictional account of Canada’s colonization follows the life of the devout and resourceful Cécile Auclair. The National Willa Cather Center declares that the novel, “is a luminous evocation of North American origins, and of the men and women who struggled to adapt to that new world even as they clung to the artifacts and manners of the one they left behind.”
