A totally enchanting new New Zealand novel - don't miss this one.
It is appropriate that this new novel should have such a stunning cover because the work contained within the covers is also stunning.
It is a long time since I have read a New Zealand novel that has so entranced me. Read over 24 hours I was captivated, moved, saddened, thrilled and totally enchanted by the work which the author describes as " a celebration of the Greek and Kiwi connection that goes back to the Second World Way and the little-known story of the Greek girls who migrated to New Zealand in the sixties".
It is all of that and much more too. It is a very fine piece of writing and publishing and I offer my warm congratulations to the author and the publisher.
