J.F. Riordan discusses "The Audacity of Goats"

Second in the award-winning North of the Tension Line series, The Audacity of Goats (Beaufort Books, April 2016) is the continuing tale of Fiona Campbell, and her reluctant adventures among the pleasures, mysteries, and exasperations of life on a remote island.  

Called a "modern-day Jane Austen," J.F. Riordan's lyrical prose and rich characters are a tribute to small town life and the beauty of the ordinary. Peopled with sharply drawn characters whose experiences are by turns serious, mystical, and ridiculous, The Audacity of Goats brings into sharp focus the pitfalls and vicious politics that prevail in small towns everywhere. 

The Audacity of Goats is literary escapism that will appeal to adults and young adults alike, and a welcome return to the characters who feel like old friends amidst the picturesque and mystical way of life North of the Tension Line. 


A transplanted Midwesterner, J. F. Riordan lives in exile from Washington Island with her husband and two and a half dogs. She blogs at http://northofthetensionline.net
