I must confess that I stopped reading this book when Claire and her father go into a tavern to celebrate the supposed end of the Great War. I’ve always been under the impression that Quebec had a rather stringent tavern law that barred women’s entry and that was apparently in force until 1979. Maybe it was different in this period, but I have heard more than a few stories about boys having to go to the tavern to get their fathers because their mothers were not allowed in. Persnickety I am, particularly with historical fiction.
