The Right of Way

The Right of Way by Gilbert Parker
By: (1862-1932)

I recently finished reading a compelling novel that swept me away to 19th century Canada and France. The story follows the intertwining lives of an exiled French nobleman turned Canadian woodsman, and a wealthy American woman seeking a new start. Their paths collide in a series of unexpected events that test their beliefs, values, and relationships.

I was captivated by the intricate plot and vivid descriptions of the scenery and characters. The author’s writing style is lyrical and evocative, bringing the historical setting to life in a way that is both immersive and engaging. The themes of love, loyalty, and sacrifice are woven throughout the narrative, adding depth and emotional resonance to the story.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Right of Way and would highly recommend it to fans of historical fiction and romance. It’s a beautifully crafted novel that offers a glimpse into a bygone era, while also exploring universal themes that are still relevant today.

Book Description:
Charley Steele is a successful and brilliant Canadian lawyer. He has a nagging wife, Kathleen, and a lazy brother-in- law, Billy. In spite of his success, he is disillusioned with his life, drinks too much, and is deeply troubled by his agnosticism which leads to trouble and confusion. When Billy embezzles money, Charley discovers the theft and sets out to make things right. Charley however, ends up in a waterfront saloon where he encounters a barroom brawl and becomes unconscious. Charley loses his memory and ends up in the Canadian Northwoods where he falls in love with a pretty postmistress, Rosalie. He finds he is perfectly content with his "new" life but when his memory returns, he is deeply disturbed by his past and ponders whether to return to his old life to make amends. Mystery, romance, and intrigue are interwoven throughout the novel. The Right of Way was made into movies in 1915, 1920, and 1931.
