Under cover of a love letter, this is an impressionistic history of the women
of Québec down through the ages: the Indian, the fille du Roy,
the nun, the settler's wife, the soldier's wife, and, finally, today's woman,
who examines her traditional role as mother and wife, and contrasts it with
her new place in the labour force. The couple, and the difficulties involved
in being a couple, are touched upon with great tenderness.
