This is an auction for SING TO ME DREAMER, by Shonagh Koea.

"It is many years since I turned the pages of the little book I wrote for the holy man, and the ivory covers creak as I open on the story of how I went to India ...As my voice ascends, thin as the song of a lark, I see again the black eyes of the holy man, irises flecked with gold as he hands me the pen and paper. "Oh sing to me, dreamer," he said, and I began to write. Back home as she sorts out her deceased Mother's estate, Margaret Harris reflects on her time in India as mistress to a Maharajah. But there are many things that she has to confront in the present - her bullying lawyer, the aggressive neighbour, and the spectre of her failed relationship with her mother."

About the Author: Shonagh Koea's notable writing career met with early success in a Woman's Weekly writing contest, in which (aged eight) she won two guineas. She went on to become a journalist and to win the Air New Zealand Short Story Award (1981), and more recently to write three short story collections as well as seven novels. Of the novels, Sing to Me, Dreamer was a finalist in the New Zealand Book Awards (1995) and The Lonely Margins of the Sea was runner-up for the Deutz Medal for Fiction (1999). Shonagh Koea has also held the University of Auckland Fellowship in Literature (1993) and the Buddle Findlay Sargeson Fellowship (1997).
