His descriptions of the landscape and the people of Kamouraska are rich and evocative, making it easy to imagine oneself wandering the streets of this charming town.

One of the most compelling aspects of the book is Derome's exploration of family dynamics and the complexities of relationships. Through his recollections, the reader is drawn into the joys, sorrows, and secrets that have shaped his family history.

Book Description:
François Derome, auteur, avocat, fonctionnaire et journaliste canadien français, décrit en portraits brefs des paysages et personnages aimés de la région de Kamouraska au Québec en mi-19e siècle. Apparaissant alors dans un recueil nommé le Foyer Canadien, Les Reminiscences furent digitisés par l'université de Toronto en 2011. Le récit semble incomplet, mais porte néanmoins un intérêt historique. À noter qu'un roman de l'auteur contemporaine, Anne Hébert, réalisé lui aussi autour de Kamouraska, a connu un succès international.
