The GOOD LIFE on TE MUNA ROAD
============================
by Deborah Coddington (ex-MP)

** An engaging, affectionate reflection on life in a small rural community, finding love and making wine.

The first time Deborah Coddington lived in Martinborough was in the height of the hippie era, when the old mansion Waiura attracted poets, protesters, novelists, photographers, artists and activists. It was a counter-culture scene of some privilege and distinction.

However the music stopped when, crushed by debts, she and her partner were forced to leave town.

Nearly forty years on, with a successful career as a journalist, a stint as a restaurateur and a term in parliament behind her, Deborah returned to Martinborough not quite sure of the welcome she would receive.

In this wry, amusing and heart-warming memoir she writes of finding a community full of outstanding and entertaining individuals that demonstrates the can-do, all-in-this-together spirit of provincial New Zealand. Now a good deal wiser and very much in love with her new husband, Colin Carruthers QC, Deborah lays some ghosts to rest, writes movingly about the death of her mother, details the vicissitudes of being a wine grower and shares the joy of life with her beloved animals.

Confiding, candid, and generous of heart, this is a tribute to small town New Zealand
