COLLEEN MACDONNELL, 47, is the no-nonsense Director of Halifax Legal Aid who’s got a head for politics and a skill for managing people. She’s been dealt devastating blows in her life—betrayed by her ex-wife and law partners back home in Toronto—but she has never let life’s setbacks stop her. She gets back up and keeps fighting. Always moving forward, Colleen’s driven to build a legacy – in this case, the best legal aid office in the province. And once that’s done, she can go home, her accomplishments under her belt and her pride restored. It’s true, Colleen’s been focused on getting out of the fog and into the smog, but now that she’s met Emily, just maybe she’s found a reason to stay in Halifax.
