The Fire-Dwellers

Margaret Laurence's novel follows a woman with four children and an uncommunicative husband, who believes that there is more to life than the tedious routine of her days.

Margaret Laurence

Stacey MacAindra wants to burst through the shadows of her existence into a richer life, to recover some of the passion she can only dimly remember from her past.

Margaret Laurence has given us another unforgettable heroine — human, compelling, full of poetry, irony and humour. In the telling of her life, Stacey rediscovers for us all the richness of the commonplace, the pain and beauty in being alive and the secret music that dances in everyone's soul.
