fold of the hills coverSaskatchewan’s Qu’Appelle Valley is said to echo with mysterious voices – voices Québec novelist Martine Noël-Maw seems to hear as she spins a masterful tale of secrets hidden In the Fold of the Hills. Set against the background of the valley’s historic sanatorium, known as Fort San, the novelist weaves a dramatic fiction of family entanglements and a search for origins. Dr. Emile Murray is the grandson of Fort San’s longtime medical director and pioneering tuberculosis specialist. Or is he? A late aunt’s diaries and letters suggest otherwise. Reading them, Emile’s wife Sophie is surprised to discover revelations which might restore the tarnished reputation of Emile’s grandfather, but with upsetting implications for her husband. After digging to uncover the truth, Sophie must decide whether some secrets are best left intact.

This spellbinding novel of unfolding revelations was originally published in French, winning a Saskatchewan Book Award.
