This week we bring you a love story -- in the most unlikely of places.

Leanne and Philippe met planting trees in northern British Columbia.

She was an anglophone from BC. He was a francophone from Quebec.

Find out about how they connected despite dirt, black flies, and the language barrier.

Listen to the program

Also on the program, Radio-Canada's Florence Meney talks about the launch of the fall literary season in French.

Here are the books she mentions:

"Burqa de chair", by Nelly Arcan. One of the stories in this book relates to the author's experience on the Radio-Canada program Tout le monde en parle, and has sparked something of a controversy.

"Ne vous taisez plus!" by Denise Bombardier and Françoise Laborde

"Maggie", by Daniel Lessard

"Les dernier jours de Smokey Robinson", by Catherine Mavrikakis
