In Family Without a Name
, the oppressed minority is the the French-speaking and Catholic people of Quebec in 1837. Against a background of historical events, Jules Verne weaves a tale of treachery, intrigue, high adventure and romance.
Even amongst his closest friends, only a few know that the man they call simply "Jean" is really the elusive and charismatic Jean-sans-nom, the Patriote leader with a price on his head. Only two people -- his mother and his brother -- know the terrible secret of his true identity and why it must go with him to the grave. And the woman he loves must never learn that the money he uses to buy weapons for the underground Patriote cells is bloodmoney.
