The Journey Home/Te Haerenga Kainga tells the continuing story of Cowrie, a woman of mixed heritage from Hawai'i and New Zealand. In this novel Cowrie travels from her traditional homeland to the urban life of San Francisco and UC Berkeley. Cowrie is a hugely enthusiastic charact...er with a need to save the world. And, in her own way, she does. This is a novel peopled by an array of diverse characters: Benny the outrageous filmmaker who comes to pick Cowrie up from the airport on her Harley; Peta who Cowrie falls in love with; and the student DK who has a few things to learn. Cowrie is torn between her newly made friendships in California and her roots in her homeland and discovers that there is a price to pay for exile, even when it is voluntary.
