Tessa is a thirty-seven-year-old real estate agent living in Montreal. She adores her husband and three young sons, but she's deeply unhappy and questioning the set of choices that have led to her present life.

After a surprising run-in with Francis, her ex-boyfriend and first love, Tessa arranges to see him. During the three days before their meeting, she goes about her daily life -- there's swimming lessons, science projects, and dirty dishes. As the day of her meeting with Francis draws closer she has to decide if she is willing to disrupt her stable, loving family life for an uncertain future with him.

With startling clarity and emotional force, Fanny Britt gives us a complex portrait of a woman and a marriage from the inside out.

Superbly translated from the French 'Les Maisons', ‘Hunting houses’ is a portrait of a woman haunted by an ex-boyfriend and who is making an agonizing choice between the present and the past. This is a great work of French Canadian Fiction and was a finalist for two literary prizes: the Prix littéraire France-Québec and the Prix littéraire des collégiens.
