Jenny MacLeod is about to lose her family farm because of crushing debt. The only way to save her farm is to sign up for a wind turbine project. When protestors invade their beach and her father has a heart attack, the wealthy Murdochs who benefit from the turbine project take Jenny in. Soon Jenny is alerted by her sly and cunning friend Pavel that Mr. Murdoch has been keeping things from the MacLeods that could save their farm without the turbine project. So Pavel and Jenny set out to make things right.

Opinion: 

I thought this book was well written. I also enjoyed the characters and what they did. I took some time thinking about character motives and they were interesting. I also learned new words and their meanings because this book is from across the pond. The book was well thought out and I enjoyed the characters and surprises. I enjoyed Pavel and his mother -  that was an interesting twist -  and I could relate to Jenny when she felt betrayed. The book was a nice eco-thriller and I enjoyed it.

 

 

P.S. Now my mother wants to read it.

Content rating - some mature content

Explain your content rating: 

The book had some violence but not much. Sandy messed up and almost killed a man. Then there were lies and the betrayal of Windy.
