about

A Crossing of Hearts continues the Desrosiers Diaspora novel series, a family saga set in Montreal during World War I.A heartwarming comedy about two middle-aged First Nations seniors, Evie and Cecil, on their very first trip out of the country. Evie and Cecil reminisce and bicker as they review a lifetime together. CECILSo, what exactly are we going to do now that we're here in Mexico? EVIEI'm so glad you asked. Supposedly there are some ancient Mayan ruins somewhere in the interior, not far from here. Ithought that might be interesting. CECILIf you want to look at an ancient, broken-down, Indian ruin, we can go visit your cousin. Evie and Cecil are celebrating their thirty-fifth wedding anniversary. As a gift, their grown children send them on a second honeymoon - to a fabulous resort on the Caribbean coast of Mexico. The only problem is that neither have ever been out of the country, let alone off their Cree reservation. Each reacts to their new experiences differently, and something ominous seems to be bothering Cecil. Despite the sun, sand, and sea sparkling right outside the resort window, all Cecil seems to want to do is sit alone in his hotel room, idly flipping through TV channels, the curtains pulled tight. What is he worried about? Maybe there is more behind this trip than he has been told. The past, present, and future all pay the couple a visit as they acclimatize to the pleasures of Mexico - and spicy food. Mixed up in all the fun is their hotel housekeeper, Manuela. As they form a bond with this courteous young local, they help her navigate some of the troublesome situations in which she finds herself. Cast of 1 man and 2 women."
