Synopsis:
The culmination of the Manawaka cycle, and Laurence's final novel, The Diviners is an epic tour de force. It is the story of Morag Gunn, an independent woman who refuses to abandon her search for love. We follow her from her lonely childhood in a small town on the Canadian prairie through her demeaning marriage and escape from it into writing, fiction, and finally back to rural Canada, where she faces a different challenge - the necessity to understand, and let go of, the daughter she loves. Throughout, Morag is forced to test her strength against the world - and at last achieves the life she had determined would be hers. In Morag Gunn, Laurence has created a figure whose experience emerges as that of all dispossessed people in search of their birthright, and one who survives as an inspirational symbol of courage and endurance.

Review:
"[An] unusually honest account of a woman's inner life, fully representing the recklessness and ruthlessness women sometimes disavow in fiction. This accuracy as to feeling is the best thing in a very good book, and at times recalls D. H. Lawrence is its alertness to emotional temperature."

Peter Straub, New Statesman, 01/10/1975

Review:
"THE DIVINERS is Margaret Laurence's most interesting novel because Morag Gunn is her first female character who does, at times, surprise us, who can act in unpredictable ways, the first Laurence woman who is significantly more than just a creature who gets married and has children, or worries about a lonely spinsterhood. With Morag Margaret Laurence stretches the limits of melodrama; THE DIVINERS is a novel that makes me look forward to her future work."

Sheldon Frank, New Republic, 07/27/1974

Book Description: Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. In The Diviners, Morag Gunn, a middle aged writer who lives in a farmhouse on the Canadian prairie, struggles to understand the loneliness of her eighteen-year-old daughter. With unusual wit and depth, Morag recognizes that she needs solitude and work as much as she needs the love of her family. With an afterword by Margaret Atwood. Mrs. Laurences novel is both poetic and muscular, and her heroine is certainly one of the more humane, unglorified, unpolemical, believable women to have appeared in recent fiction.
