Summary
"In 2001, the skeleton of a woman is found in the woods surrounding the [then] Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal. Despite a thorough investigation involving the hospital's records, a reconstitution of the woman's face, several missing person appeals, DNA tests, and an analysis of the deceased's hair revealing where she'd lived, and how she ate, it was impossible to find out who that woman was. She was dubbed Madame Victoria, put into a box in an evidence room, and once again forgotten."--

Summary
In 2001, a woman’s skeleton was found in the woods overlooking Montreal’s Royal Victoria Hospital. Despite a bewildering array of attemps, the woman was never identified. Assigned the name Madame Victoria, her remains were placed in a box in an evidence room and, eventually, forgotten. But not by Catherine Leroux, who constructs in her form-bending Madame Victoria twelve different histories for the unknown woman. Like musical variations repeating a theme, each Victoria meets her end only after Leroux resurrects her, replacing the anonymous circumstances of her death with a vivid re-imagining of her possible lives
