Spring 1968 - An attack perpetrated by young revolutionaries causes the death of an innocent person. A year later, a man threw himself between Lévis and Quebec in the icy waters of the St. Lawrence River. This suicide, of which the narrator Monique is a witness and the death of her great friend Claudie, in strange circumstances during the country festival of Saint-Tite, will haunt her for a long time.

The revelations of Allan, musician and former companion Claudie, Monique reviews years later, will shed new light on these dramas. Then, ties of friendship with Laurie, a Native American survivor of residential schools, will change the course of her life.

Through these fates that cross and clash, like pieces of ice floating and breaking on the river, Claire Boulé plunges us, with great finesse, into the heart of the recent history of Quebec, the Crisis of October in the spring maple.

About the author: Born and raised in Quebec City, Claire Boulé kept her nostalgia for the river and the imprint of long snowy winters from her hometown. In 2003, she left teaching to devote herself to her two passions: painting and writing. Since then, she has participated in several solo and group exhibitions while publishing poetry and short stories. The dull sound of ice is his first novel.
