A Canadian classic, Children of My Heart is a profound and compassionate testimony to the indomitable human spirit.

Set in the prairies of the 1930s, and rich with the author’s own memories of her time there as a young woman, Children of My Heart is the powerful story of an impressionable and passionate teenaged teacher and the children whose lives she touched.

From immigrant families now living in unforgiving surroundings, many of the students have been wounded by poverty and misfortune. Most memorable is Médéric, a seemingly hostile boy who opens up a new world for his teacher—not much more than a girl herself—until her feelings for him bring her to make the most difficult decision she has ever faced.

BELOVED TV MOVIE

Gabrielle Roy was born in Manitoba in 1909. The youngest of eight children, she studied in a convent school for twelve years, then taught school herself. In 1937 Roy travelled to Europe to study drama, and during two years spent in London and Paris she began her writing career. The approaching war forced her to return to Canada, and she settled in Montreal. Roy’s first novel, The Tin Flute, ushered in a new era of realism in Quebec fiction with its compassionate depiction of a working-class family in Montreal’s Saint-Henri district. Her later fiction often turned for its inspiration to the Manitoba of her childhood and her teaching career. Roy complemented her fiction with essays, reflective recollections, and three children’s books. Her many honours include three Governor General’s Awards, France’s Prix Fémina, and Quebec’s Prix David. She died in Quebec in 1983.

“Gabrielle Roy has never written anything as passionate, as troubling…how far she has come, to the heart’s most hidden recesses.”
