About the Book

‘… absorbing and believably voiced … Watson-Kell’s respect and first-hand experience of the island and its people shows through her sensitive portrayal of Von’s spiritual awakening.’ Sydney Morning Herald

Von’s mum has been gone for over ten years when, out of the blue, she invites him to New Zealand. Charlene works nights at a Wellington nightclub; her boyfriend’s running from the cops, and she’s struggling to keep her two-year-old daughter. Trapped in Charlene’s chaotic world, Von spends every night at home playing parent to Stella. And then things go badly wrong — drugs, kidnapping, murder … Von is drawn to the home of his Moriori ancestors. The answers wait for him there, but does he have the strength to find them?
