Description

In the dubious sanctuary of the forest, a writer encounters a woman whom she suspects may be her double. So begins a journey of enquiry in which nothing, not even the author’s own identity, is certain. Who is Heather Thorne? Is she just a stranger struck by amnesia, the victim of an accident or a crime? Who is the author? Is her own name not in fact Heather Thorne?

Rich with a profound sense of the wintry boreal forest, where nothing is ever entirely known , the celebrated and prize-winning Quebec noir novelist Andrée A. Michaud once again defies categorization in an ethereal mystery of fragmented memory that meditates on the very process of literary creation.
