Lynne Hinton is a born storyteller, here at the top of her form, writing with compassion and understanding. -- Lee Smith, author of The Last Girls
Lynne Hinton writes lyrically about the kind of life we all dream of having -- of abiding friendships, deep roots, and love no-matter-what. -- Philip Gulley, author of The Harmony Series
Lynne Hinton has delivered a delicate, thoughtful book with a great deal of heart. When middle-aged Katie Sinclair decides to climb a loblolly pine to make sense of her life, the reader gets a new view of the world. Enriching! -- Anne Clinard Barnhill, award-winning author of The Beautician's Notebook and At the Mercy of the Queen
What a joy to be transported into Katie Sinclair's world, in which her curiosity and knowledge of the rare make her an inadvertent heroine. Courageous in the face of many threats -- human, animal, and natural -- Katie emerges as a model for the contemporary woman situated in the crosshairs of competing interests. Hinton's prose is sure and elegant. -- Lynn Pruett, author of Ruby River
The premise alone makes you want to read The View from Here, the story of a middle-aged bird-lover who climbs a loblolly pine and refuses to come down. Why should she? She's doing it crazy and doing it big. When the curious ask her why, she remains mum -- and up a tree -- because she's not sure of the 'why' herself. Lynne Hinton writes this compelling tale with great and soulful skill, avoiding high dugeon about all her themes -- forgiveness, nature, loss and love. -- Rheta Grimsley Johnson, former syndicated columnist and author of Hank Hung the Moon and Enchanted Evening Barbie and the Second Coming
Lyrical and captivating. Not to be missed. -- Laura Rose Gatley, author of Grounded and Centered in the Midst of Chaos
Quintessential Lynne Hinton. Pure honey. -- Kristy Barrett, author of A Novel Bee
A profound story full of wisdom and grace from a master storyteller -- an inspirational page-turner. -- Cassandra King, The Sunday Wife
Lynne Hinton's novel about finding strength of spirit and forgiveness in a thicket of loblolly pines is the sort of book Henry David Thoreau would have appreciated. I know I did. A beautiful work. -- Michael Morris, author of Man in the Blue Moon, Slow Way Home, and A Place Called Wiregrass
Lynne Hinton's charming The View From Here interlaces recollections of childhood days of wonder in the woods with themes of protesting environmental degradation. Character relationships shine as the stars of the story. Descriptions of natural beauty and the history of birdwatching and bird habitat preservation give added depth. The View From Here is a poignant meditation on what makes the natural environment worth saving; it also shows how integral relationships are to saving human beings. -- ForeWord Reviews
The View from Here is a compelling, heart-wrenching, infuriating, and ultimately deeply satisfying read. -- Quail Ridge Books
Best-selling author Lynne Hinton (Friendship Cake) writes with a huge heart, suffusing her characters with humor, gentle wisdom, and the determination to push through life's pummelings with graceful strength and love. Impossible to put down or forget. -- Library Journal Starred Review
