    1. Newly divorced, Maggie lives a pretty mundane life Taught by her grandmother the old customs and language of her ancestors, the Mi kmag people, Maggie lingers in her memories After her grandmother s death, Maggie finds solace in her dreams where her grandmother still regularly visits and guides her Maggie depends heavily on her own special song something her ancestors relished But Maggie s life takes an unexpected turn when she takes a canoe ride and finds herself face to face with a ghostly shi [...]


    2. This book is a story of a woman named Maggie, part native American, who has left her abusive partner and returned to the home of her grandmother for a period of meditation and reflection She is transported back in time to the 1600 s and is forced to cope with the harsh environment, the influx of strangers into the land, as well as inter tribal warfare.I read the story with great interest, the author has obviously done her research because the descriptions of the people, the time and the customs [...]


    3. An overall enjoyable read that Pat Cher has put an awful lot of research into I found it to be of a YA read but that takes nothing away from the history lesson bestowed on the reader.The Mi kmaq and Penobcot tribes of early New England are not a common study Thus, everything that Ms Cher imparts to us is fairly new information about a way of life that had customs and legends that were fun to learn Maggie is a busy, continuously escaping heroine that was fairly fun to follow but the real stars a [...]


    4. Mi kmaq song was a facinating read Not only did I learn the ways of the Mi kmaq, the story, characters and suspence brought me right into their lives as if I were right there with them.Major bonus for me was.time travel


    5. Mi kmaq Song was such an enjoyable and attention grabbing reading experience Maggie is just starting a new chapter in her life, when the most unexpected of events occurs and shifts her life perspective in ways she never could have imagined previously.Being part Acadian and part Native Canadian, Maggie was lucky enough to have the opportunity to learn the ancient ways and language of her ancestors, the Mi kmag, from her grandmother This knowledge comes to benefit her in very real and challenging [...]


    6. I have mixed feelings about this book I found the background of the Mi kmaq culture fascinating it was well told and immersive but at some points I had the feeling that it was about to break into a Harlequin romance and I found that a little off putting The narrative style was clear but quite simplistic and I felt as if this was a book for a school age youth audience That doesn t mean that I didn t enjoy the book On the contrary, I found it an entertaining read but it also suffered from somethi [...]


    7. Some reviews before publication date I can see much research and ideas, time, and thought went in to this book I can see it made in to a movie to be shown on APTN.I wish you much success I can see it of interest especially to the three aboriginal groups as well as mainstream R Gordon, Senator, Metis Nation of Ontario Very much like Pat Cher, my ancestors were in Port Royale in Acadia in the 1600 s and intermarried all the way up to perhaps one hundred years ago.I read Mi kmaq Summer and found it [...]


    8. This was quite pleasant reading and well written The time travel element does not really feature too heavily, it is simply a plot device to get the main character in to the story Spoiler alert sort of My one real criticism is that the story seems to be rattling along at a fair old pace and is getting really interesting approaching the main element of real historical significance when it suddenly stops Having said that, it is worth a read just because it is well written and has some really intere [...]


    9. It is with great expertise that Pat Cher steers us back to the great Mi Kmaw nation of the 16th century.The setting is pristine and the characters well rounded Through Pat Cher s intensive research we learn about the Mi Kmaq language and their way of life The flashbacks in form of stories come a little too often but overall good story telling Maggie s voyage to an ancient world is well done, but her return seemed somehow abrupt.I was left feeling sorry for the vibrant and brave Abatuk who ends u [...]
