Heart-warming and compulsive reading, this is an entertaining, lively and moving novel from one of New Zealand's favourite authors. 'Donny Mac was released at Eastertime about a month before Pansy Holloway, also known as Nightshade, disappeared for good.' After a short stint in p...rison on trumped-up charges, the loveable simpleton Donny Mac returns to the house left to him by his grandfather in the small settlement of Manawa, in the shadow of Mt Ruapehu. Now inhabited by a handful of colourful locals, the once prosperous milling town is only bustling in the ski season when the out-of-towners arrive. Awaiting Donny's return is the drunken and pregnant Nightshade, who claims he is the father. Donny's friends keep anxiously: the lace-making Bull Howie; Vera who can be seen every evening wheeling Bull's dinner in a pram down to his house in her own version of meals on wheels; farmer George Kingi and his fey four-year-old daughter Lovey; and the strange elderly sisters who have moved in next door. Also watching is the Virgin Tracey, a sixteen-year-old hiding out in one of the abandoned houses, with her own tiny baby. When an accident threatens to put Donny back into prison, he and the Virgin Tracey come up with a solution. But can the secret remain hidden?
