The research behind Daniel is excellent, but this is no dry full-of-facts book.
Daniel's life and exploits are shared with the reader in a way that stirs the emotions.
From the New Zealand Land Wars, the hardships of pioneers trying to make their mark in a new land, and family life in rural New Zealand this book covers it all.
I also enjoyed the interlinking 'modern' extracts, and the journey of the narrator in finding this information.

I was hooked from the first page as the characters sprang to life. I could hear their voices, and imagine the humble kitchen scene as if it was a British television drama. It sent me turning the pages to find out what happened next, and I wasn't disappointed.
This is a fascinating insight into the lives of real people who came to New Zealand and built their lives in a new land. A well-researched history, but with the full flavour and passion of a novel. Recommended!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this historical novel of Daniel's life.
The author created a real journey of interest as we flipped between past and present time, interweaving the characters lives.
The combination of history and real life hardship coupled with a romantic touch made the book very engaging. I believe both men and women would like this book. Highly recommend it!!
