Canadians today accept a range of relationships. Because of our current tolerance, many young people may find it hard to believe the terrible shame once associated with illegitimacy.
Ostenso’s account of one man’s cruel hold over his family in 1925 shows how far we’ve come on this. The story unfolds around Judith’s bid to be free of her father’s tyranny, a power enforced by her mother’s dreadful secret. Tension between freedom and bondage is reflected in the isolation of the Canadian prairie—its land and its weather. This early feminist novel provides insight for people of all ages.
