"The death of a fisherman...sparks a deadly feud in this...tale that vividly portrays...the unexpected beauty...of Downeast Maine.... Keller builds suspense slowly but inexorably...about what will happen when his fiercely independent sons find out how he died." --Kirkus Reviews
"The rich lore of the Maine lobstermen combines with an energetic narrative and muscular prose to make Keller's fiction debut a winner." --Publishers Weekly
"Keller's debut novel examines the tough and hardscrabble world of Maine fishing families. With Shakespearean overtones, Keller's immersive story examines the difficult choices that are made when a family legacy is at stake. His well-crafted narrative builds into an epic story of addiction, greed, betrayal, and the vast power of the sea." --Library Journal
"A gorgeously-written exploration of faith and loyalty, love and dishonesty.... I will never forget these characters, these waters, or the harrowing dramas unfolded upon and beneath them." --Anthony Doerr, author of All The Light We Cannot See
"I found myself swept away with the first stroke of the oar.... So accurate and compelling that I couldn't put the book down.... The writing sings...[Keller] wraps you in the web of his fine prose.... Of Sea and Cloud makes an excellent read that I highly recommend." --Fishermen's Voice
"Keller is masterful at timing his twists and plot reveals, and I found it difficult to set the book aside. The nuts and bolts of the lobster fishing business are fascinating.... I am eager to see what he comes up with next." --Missoula Independent
"This is lobstering like you've never known or experienced it... Jon Keller's awesome novel, Of Sea and Cloud...is one you won't forget.... I was...captivated by Keller's descriptions of the lobstering life." --Bangor Daily News

I enjoyed the story-telling of Jon Keller. The absense of proper punctuation made the reading more difficult than needed. Read morePublished 18 days ago by Richard F. Bordin
I enjoyed this book. Once I started reading it, I found it kept my interest to the end. I thought it ended a little abruptly, but I suppose there wasn't much story left to tell. Read morePublished 28 days ago by Browneyesea

Very depressing story. I am not one to quit in the middle of a book so I trudged through til the end. I would not recommend.Published 2 months ago by Terrie
Very well written. Not only an interesting mystery but an in depth exploration of the characters personalities.
Also learned a lot about lobster fishing.
Quite wonderful book that held my attention. The ending was disappointing and To my mind the profanity was very unnecessary. D HobsonPublished 2 months ago by Boise Bobbie
Keller's writing style is almost poetic in his descriptions of scenes, the sea, the sky, the coastal landscape. Read morePublished 3 months ago by D. Starke
This author thinks he's being cute but the book is hard to read without quotation marks. Very distracting. I didn't enjoy it like I could have.Published 3 months ago by Arlene Kovash
