Rowell, Carolyn (2000) Scribe rule. Masters thesis, Concordia University.
This collection of short stories is set in, or near, the Eastern Townships of southern Quebec, and takes its name from an ancient technique of timber framing used by the early settlers of the region. The characters of the collection are connected by their experiences during the 1960s and 1970s in the small town of Galt. During this time of rapid social change, they struggle to understand themselves and others, and try to shape relationships while confronting the inescapable nature of the past. The effects of war, poverty, alcohol abuse, and intolerance on a community and its members, interweave with the hope offered by family, fellowship, courage, and love.
