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.
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
