              Retirement - is it a wasteland or a wonderland? Ruth, Trudy and some other baby-boomers they meet along the way, are about to find out. Drawn together by a love of music, they form a ukulele band which takes them on a journey far beyond their original intention of giving free con...certs in nursing homes. They face challenges common to their age group but this feel-good fiction is designed to put a smile on the reader's face. Set in Auckland, New Zealand, its message is universal; that there is life after hanging up one's work boots.

              Our Stories, Our Voices, Our Identities: The New Zealand Resettlement Storybook (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The New Zealand Resettlement Storybook is an introductory narrative to encourage relationship building between resettled people and New Zealand society. The stories in this book recall the lived experiences of individuals from a forced migrant background, i.e., those who were for...ced, because of civil war and persecution, to leave their country of origin without having the choice to immigrate. These narratives are human stories of hope and resilience that give different voices and space to tell their life stories beyond settlement. This is a sequel to the book Beyond Refuge: Stories of Resettlement in Auckland , published in 2016 and second print in 2021. This book has been compiled by the author for the Aotearoa Resettled Community Coalition (ARCC) as a part of his strategic leadership role to engage and connect with wider stakeholders, including service providers, policymakers, the media, and educational institutions, politicians, and the public. The book serves as a guide, resource, and tool to equip the audiences with resettlement knowledge. These narratives bring a greater understanding of the journeys toward smooth settlement and positive integration at local, regional, and national levels. The book captures ethnic diverse background voices that foster sustainability and help maintain the storyteller's own cultural identities. The storybook shares these human struggle and success stories with love and compassion to all Aotearoa, New Zealand (resettled people and host society) and the world. It recognizes the Aotearoa New Zealand hospitality and the opportunity that allows time to become a healer for some of the individual storytellers as they recover from the past and discover their new home dreams. The spirit of willingness to tell a story and share personal confidences opens a larger audience to hear directly from people who have lived through traumatic experiences. The book aims to change people's mindsets and worldviews through storytelling. And it will tak

              For all our technological wizardry, we have failed to arrive at a critical understanding of what it means to be human. Trees grow true to their seeds, dogs know how to be dogs, kittens naturally mature into cats. In our case, we just don't seem to have 'connected the dots'. In sp...ite of age-old advice from Those Who Know - the saints and seers of every religion - we are further than ever from reaching our potential for the kind of greatness, creativity and beauty of being that every true sage unanimously advocates. In short, we are more 'off-song' than we have ever been. This has resulted in a seriously 'off-key' planet. Our Mother Earth may even stop performing! Perhaps, being the complex beings we are, we don't know practically speaking, where to begin. So we place the whole business in the too hard basket, or deny our destinies, leave questions about growth, meaning and a lasting happiness unanswered. By default, we fall back into the customs and rules of our surrounding cultures, assuring ourselves that this is all there is anyway. The 'songs we sing' are reflections of our cultural shortcomings, often disappointing and discordant. Turning our backs on our amazing potentials, we fall prey to social ills and spills. Why do you think our hospitals and our prisons are full to overflowing, our suicide statistics so high? The point is: it's not all that hard to find and express your true 'song. It's far more divine than difficult in fact. The author's story, told with candour and humour, is rich with helpful hints on practical ways for you to find your way through to a life of happiness and harmony.

              Road to Faa'Imata 2022: 75Th Anniversary (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Faa'imata represents the traditional home of Kava, a significant figure and source of Tongan culture. Thus, as in the legend of the origin of Kava, Faa'imata connotes a place where great sacrifices have been laid to honour authority and yet also where kingly favours have been gra...nted that covered shortcomings and inadequacies. More significantly, it marks a place where new beginnings and new legacies can sprout. Therefore the Road to Faa'imata represents the many facets and multiple interpretations of the pathways and passages traversed by each of the Tonga High School ex-student featured. It represents an equalizer of sorts where students coming from diverse backgrounds and stations in society are provided with empowering opportunities to achieve outcomes that benefit Tonga, reflecting their capacity to absorb, critique and reapply what they have learnt.

              Browne explores through her intriguing story set in late 1800s how English society was constructed under the Darwinian theory of 'survival of the fittest' which placed men higher on the evolutionary ladder. 'Man's power is active, progressive, defensive. He is eminently the doer,... the creator, the discoverer, the defender. His intellect is for speculation, and invention; his energy for adventure, for war, and for conquest... The woman's power is for rule, not for battle - and her intellect is not for invention or creation, but for sweet ordering, arrangement, and decision... She must be enduringly, incorruptibly good; instinctively, infallibly wise-wise, not for self-development, but for self-renunciation: Wise, not that she may set herself above her husband, but that she many never fail from his side.' (Direct quote - John Ruskin, Sesame and Lilies, 1865, part II) But is she permitted to rule? Can women over turn the power struggle when they leave England and settle in the Australian colonies? Follow the fascinating lives of two families as they face challenges in their efforts to love, honour and obey their husbands at a time when women began the fight for equality. You might be reminded of your own Achilles heel in the process.
