Set in near-future, after the glaciers have gone, water is now the most precious resource in Alberta. 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.

This book takes place in the future in southern Alberta. A future where there is no more fresh water in our beautiful prairie provide. A future where water is a pricey commodity delivered through pipelines, not oil. A not so distant future. Wow. This book comes across as a very possible future for us if we don't change our ways. It is a warning. It is a calling. To change. To do something different. To try something new. To be brave. To stand for what's right for everyone, not just ourselves.
