Mata, Makareta, and Misy, three Maori cousins, once shared a magical childhood moment. They have since followed separate and very different paths, yet their struggles offer insightful glimpses into the lives of contemporary New Zealand women. Patricia Grace’s keen eye records the psychological, cultural, and political circumstances that color and circumscribe their worlds in the engaging compassionate story.
