The Price of Bacon by Jeanette Aplin

With the lighthouse-keeping era far behind them, author Jeanette Aplin and husband Pip have built their small home on the sparsely populated D'Urville Island which forms the rugged western boundary of the outer Marlborough Sounds. Here they have neither roads nor electricity to their property, but thanks to Pip, a solar panel powers the author's laptop and printer.

With Pip constantly away working full-time as a builder, Jeanette home-alone cherishes a dream. She will keep a pair of kunekune pigs, New Zealand's special breed who origins are shrouded in mystery - 'cheerful, wide-mouthed smiling pigs that will talk to me and follow me round like a dog'....

With her trade-mark candour and humour, the author writes her story as she lives it, building layer upon layer and leading us intimately into a life that is very different but compellingly universal.

It is also an 'accidental love story', not just with the pigs but about wildlife, husband, family and friends, and always the island itself.
