Before he died, Henri Morais thought changing his name to Henry Maris, doing good deeds and surrounding himself with the splendor of the mountains in northern Idaho was enough. He thought that his guilt over being part of the violence of the Quebec separatist movement would be buried with him. It wasn't. A woman who comes to the funeral, a stranger, turns out to be the loose thread that begins to unravel his hidden past.
Ellen Maris, isn't sure whom she's most upset with: her daughter, for going to Montreal and digging up what had happened so many years before; her son, for encouraging his sister; or Henry, for dying and leaving her. In desperation, she starts a small baking business from her home, all the while brooding over what Marie might find out in Montreal.
Montreal during the violence-prone sixties; a bomb thrown into a crowded caf in Bahrain; two helicopters burned by eco-terrorists in Idaho.

TWO-HEARTED CROSSING tells the story of a flawed family, struggling to move forward in their suddenly upside-down world. It also tells a story of resilience, of survival, of hope and of love.
