A fictionalised account of the atrocities that occurred in Parihaka, Taranaki during the 1870s and one woman’s fight to save her husband.

© “I am always gobsmacked that the Parihaka story does not have more recognition in NZ.  It is uplifting and devastating all at once.  One of my favourite authors tells a stunning story of Parihaka and the good vs evil sentiments are strong.” – Suzy

© “I enjoyed learning about one of the more reprehensible episodes in our country’s history and learned a lot. I did feel the story became too far-fetched as it neared its conclusion, however, it didn’t stop me turning pages! Excellent pace and well-crafted characters, so definitely worth a read.” – Rachel
