The biography of Marie-Louise Bouchard Labelle tells the story of a young Canadian woman from a humble background at the turn of the twentieth century. She discovered love with the priest of her village. After three children and 15 years of happy life together, her husband returned to the priesthood, just before the Great Depression.
Trépanier narrates this brave woman’s struggle to raise their children alone, bringing up questions about the mandatory celibacy of Catholic priests and the status of women in the Catholic Church.
