cover The Keening

The Keening is the first in my new series called Remnants, which follows the MacLean family through the years and over rough seas. It can be bought at the fine independent bookstores listed above.

Here’s a juicy bit from an early reviewer:

“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.”
–From reviewer Tonya Rawe
