Lost in SeptemberBook - 2017
"A tall, red-haired, homeless thirty-something ex-soldier, battered by PTSD, General James Wolfe camps out on the streets of modern-day Quebec City, trying to remember and reclaim his youth. He began writing letters to his mother when he was a child soldier of 13, and ends when he was 32, already a scarred veteran of war, just two weeks before his death. In her inventive retelling, the author places General Wolfe in a different era: he is dropped into the world of contemporary Quebec. The befuddled soldier is determined to reclaim his time and understand what has become of the British North America for which he'd abandoned his personal happiness.
