"The author is adept at pulling together stories of many different people of many different stripes, and the results are outrageous as they are believable" ... Kirkus
Near the end of the nineteenth century, two families immigrate to New Zealand, beginning a saga that will follow both from that time through the middle of the twentieth century.
As an unholy liaison interweaves the two groups, the emotional tapestry is unraveled and rewoven by the women of these families, each with her own story of heartbreak and courage, sacrilege and defilement.
A true story of women who suffer at the hands of those in whom they have placed their trust. The consequences of these events and the inspirational tale of their children who endure, are portrayed in this enthralling, powerful novel.
