Dramatic, engrossing, and a must-read. That's The Keening! Pinard's latest - and first in a series - takes you to a rapidly changing Scotland and into the lives of the MacLean family. Her vivid depictions of life and landscape on the Isle of Mull and in urbanizing and industrializing Scotland allow you to be swept away by her story. You can close your eyes and imagine you're there, sharing in the challenges of a crofter family; struggling with them to protect their land, livelihoods, and dreams; lamenting the disappointments & celebrating the victories, however large or small. Pinard's characters come alive, and you find yourself rooting for the family, waiting in suspense to see what fresh trials and new beginnings life will bring. The Keening is an exciting, emotional, and captivating story that leaves you wanting more. Where will life and the changing times take the MacLean family next? --Tonya Rawe, Reader

Do yourself a favor and get immersed in Margaret's world. Thank me later.
From the first pages, you immediately sense that the story is going to be full of surprises. The author does a beautiful job blending hope and despair as the characters face a world of unknown challenges and opportunities. At it's core, this novel is completely relatable--the reader realizes that, despite best efforts, the world is full of forces beyond one's control. Yet lingering throughout the story is perseverance, triumph, and survivalism in each of the character's lives. The author brings a mature writing style and the magic of the unknown.
Great book for a plane ride or quiet evening. I'm already getting some copies as gifts!
