A novel dramatizing the various and often conflicting ways members of an English-speaking Montreal family try to understand and cope with the Referendum crisis of 1980 in Quebec, The Restoration is one of the few literary looks Canada has at those formative and turbulent years. And with its primary motif of the burning of historic buildings and the destruction of a Canadian political legacy, The Restoration says a good deal about the tensions that continue to beset the country. ' of the first [novels] in English to unravel how the [referendum] debate politicized all aspects of daily life.' - Canadian Literature '...Henderson knows most intimately those parts of the anglo-Quebec community who have been most abused by recent Canadian history.' - The Globe and Mail 'Henderson writes a spare, clean, driven prose that cuts to the heart, both of character and of situation.' - Adele Wiseman
