Welcome to the website of Dave Riese, the author of Echo from Mount Royal
Montreal, 1951. A girl from a working class, Catholic-Jewish family falls in love. Her courtship with a handsome, Jewish orthodox man fulfills her romantic dreams and his wealth introduces her to a world of upper-class privilege. When class, religion, sexual inexperience and family secrets test their love, she struggles to control events. And then, shocking revelations change her life forever.
