  • Unlevel Crossings on Nov. 05, 2013

    One of the best romance stories I have ever read. And the plot twist and New Zealand cultural references give it an extra quirkiness.

    This book explores different narrative styles while still remaining accessible to the general reader. It is a well-wrought tender love story with elements of Maori mythology woven into it. Highly original and moving.

    These were very entertaining and imaginative Christmas tales in the style of Roald Dahl, but all have a serious message.
