              Broken Tikanga: The power of matakite, love, betrayal and sacrifice woven through generations (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              My name is Laura. I come from a line of women who have the gift of matakite (clairvoyancy). My grandmother was brought up in the old ways of tikanga (Maori customs, lore, values and protocols). Her story begins as a young girl. Tane Mahuta, god of the forest appears to her. To hi...s surprise she could see and talk with him. They fell in love. But it was a love that could not be. Eventually Nan accepts an arranged marriage. He is bitter, mean and jealous. Nan sent mum away to live in Auckland. Mum is ashamed of her past and blamed Nan for everything that went wrong. Mum did everything she could to deny that part of her life, even changing her name to Mary. Mum married an Irishman.And this is where my story begins. I grew and fitted in well with my European counterparts, but in my heart, I was Maori and I longed to be accepted.Ten years later, tragedy forces a decision that changes all our lives and we all return to Tolaga Bay, a small town on the East Coast. I'm 19 years old now and am looking for answers about memories that have reawakened and unexplainable events that have happened. I believe that only Nan has the answers to what I seek. Laura learns about her mother's hidden past and what lengths she went to hide matakite. Laura's adventures take her into an unbelievable realm of the gods and mystical creatures. She meets a deceptive friend, a fierce tribe of Patupaiarehe (fairy folk), and discovers a love that could cost her everything. Laura discovers her true power, but to keep the promise she has made means a choice between keeping or breaking tikanga.

              The bestselling author of the Sea of Freedom Trilogy returns with a sweeping family saga of two women in nineteenth-century New Zealand and their epic journey to survive in a world of their own making. It's 1837, and immigrating to a small New Zealand fishing village is an opport...unity for Ida Lange's family to build a better future. Yet for Ida, raised in a strict, religious, tight-knit German community, so much is still forbidden to a woman. Yearning for the poor day laborer she shared books with as a child, Ida is now trapped in a dire marriage to a man of her father's choosing. For Cat, who came of age in New Zealand under brutal conditions, life in the colonies hasn't been easy. Through a strange turn of events, she is adopted by a native Maori tribe, and she begins to thrive. But when she challenges the traditions of her tribe, she's banished, and left once again to rely on the only person she can trust with her future: herself. When fate brings Ida and Cat together, they recognize in each other a kindred spirit. Out of common ground grows an enduring friendship that will not be broken by the hardships of the plains, threats from the past, or the trials of family and heartache. What they'll discover is the depth of their own strength and resilience as they get nearer to the freedom they desire and demand. And their journey is just beginning.
