A literary treasure: the recently discovered letters that chronicle the passionate affair of a young woman in Paris in 1928 While helping a friend clear out an old apartment in Paris, diplomat Jean-Yves Berthault came upon a leather portfolio that contained a collection of handwritten letters. After reading the first one, Berthault realized that he had stumbled upon an extraordinary correspondence—a charged and passionate epistolary love affair that brought to mind the French classics The Story of O, Justine, and Delta of Venus. He began to piece together clues. The letters were from Simone, a well-to-do, unmarried Parisian woman, to her younger, married lover, Charles. Written between 1928 and 1930, they tell the story of an illicit love affair that sparked a sexual awakening for both lovers. As the affair intensifies, Simone becomes obsessed with Charles, even as he begins to grow more distant. As her hunger deepens, she pushes him beyond all boundaries into dangerous and forbidden realms, in an effort to keep him enthralled. With each broken taboo, Charles submits—until their last fateful encounter. The Passion of Mademoiselle S. is a tour de force. In language that is by turns elegant, impassioned, and surprisingly graphic, these love letters are a portrait of a sexual and psychological obsession. Berthault’s notes on the period add dimension and context to the correspondence. But it is the voice of Simone—that of a sensual, vulnerable, and curiously modern woman—that comes through most vibrantly and echoes down the centuries. Praise for The Passion of Mademoiselle S. “The steamiest . . . text ever.”—Le Parisien

A Passion in Winter is a historical novel that evokes a pivotal year in Canada's history (1759) that forever changed the city of Quebec and its people. During the Seven Years War (1756 - 1763) the scales tipped between the two empires, France and England. British balance-of-power was to keep France from controlling Europe. North America became the chief concern of these two great powers. In the battle for Canada, France lost. After the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, the British army occupied the City of Quebec. General James Murray with some of his officers, the Fraser Highlanders, took over a wing of the Ursuline Convent for his headquarters. Conquerors and the conquered had to survive that bitter winter of 1759-1760. A tender love story develops between a novice nun and a Fraser Highlander. A Passion in Winter mourns loss of country, as well as political and private loves in life's brevity, but it also celebrates determination of a people to survive.

The counsels contained in the following pages were addressed to the Companies of Mission Priests and Sisters of Charity, founded in France for the teaching and assistance of the poor more than two hundred and fifty years ago. They are characterised by the simplicity and the directness which distinguished S. Vincent de Paul himself, and it may be found, perhaps, that their significance does not depend on place, period, or condition, but still has application here and now.
