Synopsis:

It is 1933. A journalist travels to the small mining town of Rouyn in northern Quebec - a community that has become a refuge for Russians, Finns, Ukrainians, Chinese, and Jews. While there, he crosses paths with famed Canadian Marxist Jeanne Corbin, who has come to rally a group of striking workers, and sees his life forever changed.

Jeanne's Road is an essential read, bringing to life a lost era of Quebec history through its powerful yet unsentimental love story.
