Aimee Wall's debut novel, We, Jane, starts off in Montreal with expat Marthe being lured back to her home province of Newfoundland and Labrador by an enigmatic fellow Newfoundlander named Jane, who is on a mission to increase abortion access in rural communities.

The name "Jane" is important, said Wall, who was inspired by a Chicago-based group with that name that performed abortions in the 1960s, when they were still illegal.
