Summary
August 1915. Montréal is stifled by a heat wave while war rages in Europe. The three Desrosiers sisters-- Tititte, Teena, and Maria-- had been planning a whole week of vacation in the mountains, doing nothing but gossip, laugh, drink, and overeat while basking in the sun. Maria had decided to leave her children, Nana and Théo, in Montréal, in the care of a neighbour, but gives in and takes her children along on the week-long trip to the Laurentian Mountains to visit family. As the reader views the journey through young Nana's eyes, we come to understand the impoverished circumstances they leave behind in Montréal only to find poverty ever more present in the country. Yet there it is surrounded by mountains, reflected in a lovely lake, and the blue sky gives them a moment of respite. Encounters with rural relatives crystallize young Nana's true feelings for her mother, as confidences and family secrets fuse day into night. The novel further develops the character of Maria so that we understand her motivations more fully, and offers recognizable nods to the history of Qu?bec and the dynamics of the family under the strictures of the Catholic church
