Toronto Star reviews Watershed

Robert J. Wiersema reviews Doreen Vanderstoop’s Watershed in the Toronto Star:

…the novel as a whole is powerful and thought-provoking. The book is based on a powerful balancing act, embracing CanLit clichés — struggling to save the family farm, the wayward son — while simultaneously subverting them in light of environmental devastation, a world where even the sky has changed, to a “beautiful, terrible, celestial raspberry coloured by dust and by smoke drifting in from forest fires in Northern Washington State and British Columbia.”
