    I read this in my self proclaimed New Zealand November, 2015 I saw the movie based on the film a few years ago but only have a vague memory of it The book comes from the perspective of Rawiri, the uncle of the girl Kahu It is a very readable intertwining story of the modern day characters with the mythology of the gods of New Zealand and the ancient wha

    Set text for University A short rewriting of an ancient Maori legend juxtaposed with the present day I enjoyed the insight into primordial New Zealand and their culture rich with fairy tales Young Kahu has the misfortune of not being born the boy her Great Grandfather, Koro, so desperately wanted and her one sided relationship with him was heart breaking Ye
