This was an enjoyable read overall slow in a few places but still written very well. The beautiful descriptions of the New Zealand landscapes made me wish I was there. The gold rush years where beautiful and hard but Nessa brings a breath of fresh air to the area. Really a delightful story of love and endurance.
