A story of a young intelligent 14 year old girl who gives birth to an unwanted mixed blood child called Tiaki. Strange happenings eventuate and she is isolated in her thoughts. As a young adult she seeks her sanity from Dr Neville who nurses her through her journey of abuse, loss, guilt, love and questions her ability to see things clearly. Meanwhile Tiaki is propelled into the world of prejudice, socialism and murder. As a 19 year old boy, he finds himself twisted in the journey of afterlife and gets a glimpse through another child’s eyes of love, grace and non-judgement.

About the Author
I am a new author from Auckland, New Zealand (Aotearoa – land of the long white cloud). My many roles in life include being a daughter, sister, cousin, friend, co-worker, mother and grandmother. I work part time as a clinical administrator which gives me some spare time to play the ukulele and write, exploring my imagination. I love poems, quotes which make you think deeply or laugh and appreciate life as life is precious. Sometimes people’s lives are changed by extraordinary events, opportunities, chance happenings (happy and sad). In a second, life can throw you a curve ball that will turn your life upside down and question your being. Could a smile mask a torturous mind or bring good things? This is where stories start and writing begins. A big thank you to my dearest family and friends who have encouraged me with words of enthusiasm, guidance and truthful feedback. Especially to my son Scott and friend Steve. Arohanui.
