This book is a reminder of the frightening days in Montreal, Canada, when a group of French Quebecers tried to overthrow the government by violence and fear.
The October crises did involve bombings in a wealthy mountainside community in Montreal. Mailboxes, armories and homes were destroyed by ‘separatists’ who were ready to die for their cause.
It is the story of Professor Paul Rusk, of Local, Jewish heritage and Esme Jonas, a student from Newfoundland, who are poles apart politically, but very much in love.
Anyone who lived through these times or anyone interested in history will be drawn into the two- sided argument about the horrific days of the FLQ, or Front Liberation de Quebec.
There are two sides to every story. This one is a story of ‘love’ and ‘hate’.
