Roie being assaulted by the Dutch sailors was so raw - very hard to read!

I've finished & I still feel emotional about this book! Real flawed people you care about.

It is written in an episodic format (another GR reviewer said HitS was originally serialised in The Sydney Morning Herald. Once that is pointed out to you you can see that but it doesn't detract from the book at all.

Probably my best read of the year - definitely my best by a NZ author. Just a crime that she is nearly unknown here now.


Cphe | 32 comments I'm up to the third and final in the series, and it really does pull at the heart strings.

I won't say what happens to a beloved character but it's very sad

Just let me know if you would like another thread for Poorman's Orange, Cphe


Cphe | 32 comments I think it will be okay Carol, Finished the trilogy yesterday and Poor Man's Orange is very much tied into the Harp in the South.

OK. I'm going to be on the hunt for the other 2 parts of the trilogy.

I've just finished Pink Flannel & very much enjoyed it.

I found this http://www.bookcouncil.org.nz/writer/... about Park & her books. Full of spoilers for several of Park's books so read with caution!
