I got this originally because it was free for my Kindle. I loved it, though! The thing that caught my eye was that the main character takes a trip to New Zealand. I've always wanted to go there, and this book scratched a bit of that itch. The story was decent as well, although there are a couple cultural tangents I could have done without. The characters are unique and interesting.

I was highly impressed with this great story, filled with believable characters, set in contemporary New Zealand. A highly recommended read.

LOVED her writing style. I was laughing out loud as I read at her narrative and dialogue. As an ex-pat, I identified with some of the themes in the book as I followed Rose on her journey to New Zealand to discover her mother's homeland.

I will definitely be looking into her other books.

I really enjoyed this story. I especially liked the characters. I feel like I've been to New Zealand and before this book I couldn't even begin to relate with this area of the world.

Kindle freebie about family and identity with some witty dialogue and a vivid portrait on New Zealand.
