I really enjoyed reading this book because I learned so much about New Zealand’s early European history. It’s the story of Joseph and Harriet Blackstone who emigrate from Norfolk to Christchurch, NZ.
The rest of the story is poignant and well told as each searches for survival, for meaning and love. The pursuit of happiness and meaning in a new land form Harriet and Joseph and they make choices which in turn form the character of the colonials.
