Approaching a scholar and critic as legendary as Northrop Frye is a

daunting task — but not for Mel Montrose. Armed with a prestigious

academic award and a nothing-to-lose attitude, she convinces Frye to

supervise her ambitious thesis exploring E.J. Pratt’s epic poem about Jesuit

missionary Jean de Brébeuf. To embark on her study, Mel takes a job at the

reconstructed historical site at Sainte-Marie among the Hurons, where de

Brébeuf and five other missionaries lived before they met their tragic ends.

But Mel soon learns that delving into Ontario history is no escape from her

own when an obsessed admirer threatens to destroy her academic career.
