In her best-loved novel, "The Stone Angel," Margaret Laurence
introduces Hagar Shipley, one of the most memorable characters in
Canadian fiction. Stubborn, querulous, self-reliant - and, at
ninety, with her life nearly behind her - Hagar Shipley makes a
bold last step towards freedom and independence.
As her story unfolds, we are drawn into her past. We meet Hagar as
a young girl growing up in a black prairie town; as the wife of a
virile but unsuccessful farmer with whom her marriage was stormy;
as a mother who dominates her younger son; and, finally, as an old
woman isolated by an uncompromising pride and by the stern virtues
she has inherited from her pioneer ancestors.
Vivid, evocative, moving, "The Stone Angel" celebrates the triumph
of the spirit, and reveals Margaret Laurence at the height of her
powers as a writer of extraordinary craft and profound insight into
the workings of the human heart.
