A fast-paced dystopian novel, about family bonds in the face of climate change, set in near-future Alberta after the glaciers have gone.In Watershed, water is now the most precious resource in Alberta.

With the glaciers gone, the province's oil and gas pipelines are being converted to water pipelines.

Tensions are high as 'water terrorists' threaten to violently cut off the water supply.

Against this precarious backdrop, Willa desperately tries to keep her family's failing goat farm afloat. But when her son, Daniel, goes to work for the water corporation whose high-priced commodity is putting the farm out of business, Willa is stunned.

A string of betrayals fractures the family, potentially beyond repair.

Willa feels herself losing everything that she values most - her farm, her son, her past, even her very grip on reality.

Is there any way to put the pieces back together?Watershed is a fast-paced, page-turner of a novel that cleverly explores the shattering effects of climate change on one ordinary family.
