(A Covenant of Salt)
208 pages | Août 2012 | Couverture : Frantisek Drtikol
In an isolated corner of the township of Armagh, East of Quebec City, the heiress to the only salt mine in the country is about to open her doors to an artisan who, over a ten-year period, sculpted a most curious funeral monument for her family. Powered by a literary alchemy that blends historical fact and legend, this novel explores, through the phantasmagorical representation of the characters, the individual and collective pitfalls of our memory.

“A complex work, inspired by both History and legend, L’évocation […] is first and foremost a work of detailed psychology, intricate lacework in the most precise and classicalstyle.”
“Revelation could just as easily be the title of this novel, a veritable diamond formed deep in the mind of a writer who is as discreet as she is gifted.”
