Penticton becomes the fictional town of Montague in Until Branches Bend, where a pregnant cannery worker, Robin, is in charge of controlling the quality of peaches, the region’s favoured crop. Her universe is turned upside down when she discovers the presence of an invasive insect inside one of the peaches, an insect that could threaten the livelihood of the entire town. Determined to shed light on the matter, Robin alerts her boss who feigns indifference and states that the discovery does not frighten him. Troubled by a phenomenon she interprets as a sign of impending danger, Robin decides to investigate on her own. This triggers a chain reaction that jeopardizes not only the stability of an entire community but also her social position within it.
