A Canadian Ambassador from Moscow is abruptly recalled to Ottawa, in the wake of the murder of a Russian youth in a Moscow hotel room.  Set in an Ottawa safe house in 1972, the Stillborn Lover explores the darker side of loyalty and commitment, when the stakes are high and diplomatic careers hang by the thread.  The ambassador is forced to unravel his past with his ailing wife and adult daughter, as questions of loyalty, emotional confusion and sexuality come to light.
