From the author of Toward the Sea of Freedom comes
a novel of the triumphs, tragedies, and courage of two women
bravely changing the tide of history…
nineteenth century draws to a close, the struggle for
women’s suffrage has finally reached New Zealand. But when
the tide of change rolls in, it threatens to engulf two
young women from very different backgrounds, who are coming
of age amid the tumult.
Torn between the two worlds
that make up her heritage, Matariki Drury is the daughter of
a successful white businesswoman and a descendant of Maori
royalty. Scarred by poverty and hoping to make a new life
for herself in this strange and forbidding land, Violet
Paisley is the middle child of a poor Welsh coal-mining
Drawn together by their shared commitment to
social change, and tested by traumas that neither of them
could foresee, these two independent-minded women will find
themselves thrust onto the front lines of the fight for
equal rights and racial justice. To win their place in this
world, they must learn to rise above their personal pain and
choose a path of reconciliation rather than retribution.
