Praise for The Fleur-de-lis:

Emily Isaacson, in The Fleur-de-lis, embraces Canada’s history and views it through the fresh lens of poetry. Her voice is passionate, multi-colored, and lyrical. Her skilled and accessible verses show that the reach of her understanding is deeper than fact-finding; they turn this telling into a document to be celebrated.
