Summary

About the Book 
This novel can be read as a standalone or as part of The Long Trails series! 
"A lovely combination of historical accuracy and adventure… interwoven with New Zealand's turbulent mid-19th century history as European settlers and Maori tribes battled. Lizzi Tremayne has stamped her mark as an excellent story teller who does her homework well and puts her knowledge to good use in her writing."  
    –Shelagh Merlin, NetGalley Reviewer 
"As usual in this series, the historical research is excellent… well-integrated into the narrative. The description of the environs through which Lizzi Tremayne's characters travel are particularly good—lush and vibrant. In the New Zealand section of the novel she makes our country sound like paradise. Which it is." 
     –Deborah Challinor, number one bestselling author and historian
