Everyone says you can't go back, but Mary has to do it. It's the only way she can silence a voice from the past. And find her childhood friend, Ana.
Kui is pushing her, Ana is resisting. Between the two women there's much to be resolved.
The plum tree and the manuka have both gone, but a lemon tree thrives. The mystery that surrounded the last voyage of the Marakihau might never be solved; but if Ana returns, their friendship and some things from the past can be recovered. Can't they?

"I love Every Five Minutes from the same Author, and am delighted to find this book shows her beautiful writing just as well. The characters are very real and there's a similar delicate touch to the prose. Bronwyn Elsmore has a real gift for saying just enough without too much.
Backwards Into the Future is a novel with the feel of a memoir about it. I find the combination very appealing." - J.M. -

About the Author

When carried away on a flight of fancy, Bronwyn Elsmore might say that if she'd been gifted with a better voice, she might have chosen to be an opera singer. Sadly for her, that wasn't the case, but luckily she found she could write. A list of awards confirms that.
Throughout her writing career Bronwyn has written over a wide variety of genres - articles, short stories, poetry, stage-plays, fiction and non-fiction. Since that didn't pay many bills, along the way she spent many years as an academic. Currently, though, she spends most of her writing time on fiction.
When she's not writing? You might spot her feeding neighbourhood and stray cats, or possibly adding to the list of countries visited to date. And reading, of course.
Bronwyn is a fifth generation New Zealander. She grew up in a small town quite like the one at the centre of Backwards Into the Future. This novel draws on the bi-racial Maori-Pakeha cultural heritage of that country.
