My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the second book and final part of the Polland’s saga in New Zealand.
In this book, the author describes the romantic involvement between William Pollard and Jessica Spencer, a young convict doctor by the Australian authorities, who will help to treat the inhabitants of a country still to come.
One sees the maoris accepting the new comers since each part respect their own territory and different cultures as well.
In the meantime the grown-up Pollard’s children take part of the forming society and also play an important role in the beginning of the English colonization in 1840 through the Treaty of Waitangi. The foundation of some cities are also described, such as Wellington for example.
A great work written by Aaron Fletcher, specially since the author knows how to separate the historical and the romantically aspects quite well.
Now it’s time to start to read the Outback Saga.
