First published in 1901, The Night Hawk is a smouldering, romantic novel of passion and intrigue set in Paris, Halifax and the American Deep South.
Heroine Antoinette Castelle is a wealthy Southerner--beautiful, poised, intelligent and divorced. When the American Civil War breaks out she leaves Paris to support the Rebel cause, landing in Halifax where she acts as a spy. Posing as a refugee she enjoys the conviviality of the city's social elite and its British Garrison, all the while plotting to bring international aid to the Southern States.
The Night Hawk is a lush and exciting fictional portrait of Nova Scotia's nineteenth-century colonial elite.
