            Hina, the Maori moon goddess, has 30 different faces to help illuminate life's lessons - a different face and a different energy for each day of the month. And with her changing light, new insights are revealed. This book gives us the chance to connect to the ancient wisdom of th...e old people, who reach forward into our lives, with each of the moon's names as their offerings. Their reminders are a source of strength in our strange modern world, where we have been stripped of much of the connection and relationships we need for our wellbeing through successive lockdowns. We now see just how important these things are! This book leads you through a full cycle of the moon, to consider 30 aspects of life. And lessons we thought we had learned come back around with each month's cycle and remind us of deeper layers and blind spots. And when we do find a growing awareness of place and harmony, there is a sense of release. A new kind of freedom starts to emerge, soothing our modern-day pain and suffering. This book is designed to open up our moon dreams, for a deeper affectionate connection with ourselves and others.

            'Barry was never a father to me, but he did become a friend.'-Martin Crump Barry Crump was a titan of New Zealand writing, his semi-autobiographical novels about life as a rugged outdoorsman selling more than a million copies. In his time, he was held up as the quintessential Kiw...i bloke. In our time, the situation is less sure, with Barry now well known for being an unscrupulous brute, womaniser, alcoholic and absentee husband. Barry was also the father of six children - all of them boys. For Ivan, Martin, Stephen, Harry, Erik and Lyall, Barry has always been an enigma that casts a strange shadow over their lives. Sons of a Good Keen Man is their story - the first time they've all gone on record together about their father. Published 25 years after Barry's death, Sons of a Good Keen Man offers straight-and-true anecdotes that grip, entertain, surprise and even provoke a few laughs. Each son writes frankly and movingly about how they have navigated life with or without Barry. Illuminating, essential, at times confronting, and containing never-seen-before photos, Sons of a Good Keen Man is a timely reflection on fatherhood and identity, the legacy of trauma, and how time can both heal and ask new questions.
