              The bleak coal-mining settlement of Denniston, isolated high on a plateau above New Zealand's West Coast, is a place that makes or breaks those who live there. At the time of this novel - the 1880s - the only way to reach the makeshift collection of huts, tents and saloons is to ...climb aboard an empty coal-wagon to be hauled 2000 feet up the terrifying steep Incline - the cable-haulage system that brings the coal down the railway line. All sorts arrive here to work the mines and bring down the coal: ex-goldminers down on their luck, others running from the law or from a woman or worse. They work alongside recruited English miners, solid and skilled, who scorn these disorganised misfits and want them off the Hill. Into this chaotic community come five-year-old Rose and her mother, riding up the Incline, at night, during a storm. No one else knows what has driven them there, but most agree the mother must be desperate to choose Denniston; worse, to choose that drunkard, Jimmy Cork, as bedfellow. The mother has her reasons and her plans, which she tells no one. The indomitable Rose is left to fend for herself. finding allies and enemies in her struggle to secure a place in this tough and often agressive community. The Denniston Rose is about isolation and survival. It is the story of a spirited child, who, in appaling conditions, remains a survivor.

              Absorbing. Biting. Funny. Real. BLAZE doesn't pull punches. BLAZE exposes the new order of women and power in the cut throat arena of up-market magazines. The idealistic baby boomers have been pushed aside and it's every woman for herself. An intimate look at four women coping wi...th their private and public lives in the world where scheming and fox cunning seem to beat skill and talent, where sexism and ageism in office politics label women over thirty over the hill. BLAZE is the story of women trying to survive, to compete, while maintaining friendships and finding happiness. In this pressure cooker world, something has to give and for some women it isn't worth the fight. For other's, it's all or nothing. Morrissey demonstrates once more that she is the thinking woman's answer to Barbara Cartland. - The Book Bulletin

Determined to make their own future, they gambled their dreams on a vast property called 'Jumma'. It was a huge risk but they were on their way. But one morning they almost lost it all. And what followed would test their love to the limit ...

              Missus takes us behind the lives of Hughie and Mumma, out of the gritty realism of inner city slum life and into the past of the stations, the bush and the country towns. We meet them as they were in the early 1920s, drifter Hugh Darcy, the unwilling hero who sweeps the dreamily ...innocent Margaret Kilker off her feet. Ruth Park richly creates the turmoil of those early days of their courtship in the dusty outback.
