A voyage to the New Zealand of the 19th century
am 13. Dezember 2013
Covering only a few weeks of New Zealand gold rush the author develops an intricate story that is in the beginning no easy read as it starts in the middle and then describes what was before and what came next. One can read it as a crime story (murder and attempted murder, smuggling, drug trafficing and black mailing) as historic novel - very well researched - and as a story of a special love. I enjoyed every bit of it but 700 plus pages require time and the willingness to follow the author through her meandring tale.
