Jump by Marianne Ackerman
Myra Grant is a freelance journalist, a passionate Montrealer, and a single mother. Her ex-husband is having what appears to be a breakdown in Calgary, where he lives with his new French Canadian wife. Her teenage children are beginning to claim their own brand of independence, and as the second referendum looms on the horizon, Myra scrambles for a new identity and sense of purpose.
Funny, moving and wonderfully insightful, Jump is both a love story and a cri de coeur from Canada’s most romantic city, caught, like Myra, in the throes of change.
