Summary, etc.:
In 1950s Quebec, where the French and English barely tolerate each other, Maggie Hughes falls for the French boy next door. But Maggie's English father won't have any of it, and when she becomes pregnant at fifteen, he forces her to give baby Elodie up for adoption. Elodie is raised in Quebec's impoverished orphanage system, withstanding abysmal treatment until she earns her freedom at seventeen. As time passes the stories of mother and daughter intertwine, but never touch, until Maggie realizes she must go in search of her long-lost daughter.
