"[The Hangman's Bride is] a classic tale of unexpected love in an unlikely place, developed with considerable panache. [Naomi] McCormack's attention to detail and careful recreation of eighteenth-century Montreal make this historical episode come alive, an important reminder that our history is not as dull as we might believe."
