Summary (From the publisher):

With her life nearly behind her, the witty, irascible, and proud Hagar Shipley escapes from her nursing home and sets out in search of a way to reconcile herself to her tumultuous past. Through her reflections, we come to know the rebellious young bride in a remote prairie town, her love for her two sons, the freedom she claimed, and the joys she denied herself. In this bold, final step toward freedom and independence, Hagar gains a deeper understanding of the meaning of acceptance. Her thoughts evoke not only the rich pattern of her past experience but also the meaning of what it is to grow old and to come to terms with mortality.

Edition #1: Stone Angel, the

Stone Angel, the (2004)
Edition Details (From the publisher):

This special fortieth-anniversary edition of Margaret Laurence's most celebrated novel will introduce readers again to one of the most memorable characters in Canadian fiction. Hagar Shipley is stubborn, querulous, self-reliant, and, at ninety, with her life nearly behind her, she makes a bold last step towards freedom and independence.

As her story unfolds, we are drawn into her past. We meet Hagar as a young girl growing up in a bleak prairie town, as the wife of a virile but unsuccessful farmer with whom her marriage was stormy, as a mother who dominates her younger son, and finally, as an old woman isolated by an uncompromising pride and by the stern virtues, she has inherited from her pioneer ancestors.
