St. Ursula's Convent, Or, The Nun of Canada: Containing Scenes from Real Life
In 1824, when the novel was issued in Kingston, Upper Canada, it became not only the first work of fiction written by a native-born Canadian and published in what is now Canada, but also a significant early attempt by a Canadian of English and French heritage to articulate a vision of a North American nation that linked through family, social and religious ties, the best of Great Britain and France.
