As the review says:


"WIND FROM THE WEST is a six generation fictional family's 20th century journey. A saga of enterprise and travel, romance and compassion, and generosity: placing characters into actual social and sporting events."

Moon Over The Manukau commences on the stroke of 1900 with the engagement of Ben and Priscilla at a rural party. They are pioneer farmers, with Ben hewing a new farm from rugged land with axe and slasher.

Milking cows, making cheese and butter is a dawn to dusk job for his older sister Jane. Younger sister Alison prefers to spend her time with scrub cutters. Without power or telephone Pollok is a pioneering community.

The family do make sorties to Auckland, where behind her glamorous fa?ade Priscilla?s sister Emily is learning her husband?s affairs: business and love. One glamorous occasion is the opening of His Majesty?s Theatre in 1902, where Alison gets a taste of ?nightlife?. Taught to swim by a Maori friend Annabelle Alison rescues a sailor at their valley?s gap.

Disasters and deaths change their lives. During World War 1, widowed and wealthy Emily turns her Parnell mansion into a convalescing home for soldiers. The novel ends during the influenza epidemic of 1918.
