Being as chunky as the book is, it's fitting that the story encompasses so much from bloodied history to evisceration of evil to a very diverse set of characters. For such a story to work and work well, The Diviners have a colorful set of characters that I absolutely adore.

Canadian author Margaret Laurence was born Jean Margaret Wemyss in Neepawa, Manitoba, Canada, on July 18, 1926. She attended United College (now the University of Winnipeg), receiving her . Shortly after graduation, she married Jack Laurence, a hydraulic engineer whose job would often take them overseas; the Laurences lived in England for a year, moved to British Somaliland in 1950, and then to Ghana in 1952. The latter two books both received the Governor General's Award, in 1967 and 1975, respectively.
I read this book simply because Laurence is a great storyteller. She manages to wave the past and present flawlessly never losing the reader anywhere in between. I fond that the realisionship between Morag and Pique was much like the realisionship between Deliah and Cissy in Dorthy Alison's Cavedweller. So if you like The Cavedweller then you like this book.
