Stacey MacAindra burns -- to burst through the shadows of her existence to a richer life, to recover some of the passion she can only dimly remember from her past.
The Fire-Dwellers is an extraordinary novel about a woman who has four children, a hard-working but uncommunicative husband, a spinster sister, and an abiding conviction that life has more to offer her than the tedious routine of her days.
Margaret Laurence has given us another unforgettable heroine -- human, compelling, full of poetry, irony and humour. In the telling of her life, Stacey rediscovers for us all the richness of the commonplace, the pain and beauty in being alive, and the secret music that dances in everyone's soul.
