The first Dear Canada featuring a First Nations diarist, The Death of My Country is set at a pivotal point in Canada's history â the war between Britain and France for control of New France.
GeneviÃ¨ve Aubuchon is born into an Abenaki tribe but is orphaned when another tribe destroys her village. She and her brother are taken to a convent in QuÃ©bec.While GeneviÃ¨ve gradually adapts to her new life with the sisters, her older brother runs away to rejoin the Abenaki. GeneviÃ¨ve fears for his life when he joins the First Nations allies who are helping defend QuÃ©bec against the British siege of the city and the attack on the Plains of Abraham.
