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?
As the 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 family.
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.
