RosalieeBook - 2019
"Day completed Rosalie sometime either during or shortly after the Second World War, making it possibly one of the last novels that he worked on. While the plot has several gaps and some unexplained appearances of characters from other manuscripts that Day was working on during the period, it stands apart as the most complete work in the collection of unpublished novels. The main character is a young Acadian woman, Rosalie, who flees the confines of a small fishing village and an unwanted marriage at the age of nineteen in search of a more personally fulfilling life. Rosalie's character arc is a reflection of the time during which the novel is set. She starts materially with nothing, but charm, good looks, boundless energy and intellectual curiosity take her far. She encounters support from complete strangers and ultimately succeeds by virtue of her ability to navigate a slightly broader set of societal constraints placed on women in Canada in the 1930s and 1940s." -- From the foreword.
