Judith Love

Ranging in time from the late 1960s to the present day, Watershed is the story of Anne Macleod, a young Ottawa public servant who finds her life caught up in the tumultuous events of her time—Trudeaumania, the FLQ crisis, and Quebec separatism. Finding love only to lose it, she is later confronted with a decades-old mystery, with her efforts to unravel it leading to new and surprising revelations. Watershed is a novel both of intriguing characterization and one that is evocative of times and places that still resonate in the Canadian experience.
