|Abstract: ||"Belonging" is Isabel Huggan’s third book of ‘reminiscences’, A Canadian
by birth, an expatriate by marriage, she finds herself settled permanently in the
foothills of the Cévennes in provincial France with her Scottish husband Bob.
"Belonging" is divided into twenty chapters, the first of which is titled
‘There Is No Word for Home’. Huggan uses this quirk of language deftly to
introduce her theme of being ‘both home and not-home’.
Interwoven into her narrative of life in France, with floods and storms,
friendly, inefficient workmen, and untidy neighbours, are memories of
childhood, of years spent living in Africa and the Philippines with Bob, and
regular pilgrimages to family shrines in Canada.|
