              Now a feature film, this is the unforgettable story of three women's intersecting lives. Makareta is the chosen one - carrying her family's hopes. Missy is the observer - the one who accepts but has her dreams. Mata is always waiting - for life to happen as it stealthily passes b...y.

              From the earliest days of European settlement in New Zealand, Maori have struggled to hold on to their land. Tensions began early, arising from disputed land sales. When open conflict between Maori and Imperial forces broke out in the 1840s and 1860s, the struggles only intensifi...ed. For both sides, land was at the heart of the conflict, one that casts a long shadow over race relations in modern-day New Zealand. Wars Without End is the first book to approach this contentious subject from a Maori point of view, focusing on the Maori resolve to maintain possession of customary lands and explaining the subtleties of an ongoing and complex conflict. Written by senior Maori historian Danny Keenan, Wars Without End eloquently and powerfully describes the Maori reasons for fighting the Land Wars, placing them in the wider context of the Maori struggle to retain their sovereign estates. The Land Wars might have been quickly forgotten by Pakeha, but for Maori these longstanding struggles are wars without end.

              Set in the near future, this first book in a fast-paced trilogy will hook you in from the first page. Violet Black and Ethan Wright are both in a coma. They have never met- I couldn't speak, but I was trying so hard to communicate and then . . . then . . . I pushed. And something..., someone, pushed back. Her name is Violet. Violet, but she is sunshine-yellow, and I need to find her because I think she might be just like me. But there is a far more serious reason that Ethan must find Violet- the sinister Foundation is trying to hunt them down. Reviews of Eileen's previous books- 'A Trio of Sophies doesn't so much as start as launch the reader into the centre of a storm that will hold you until the very last secret is solved. . . . ' - Weekend Herald on A Trio of Sophies 'Merriman writes what teenagers want to read, and she certainly knows how to write it well.' - NZ Books on Invisibly Breathing 'The beauty of it is that Merriman just seems to be able to cut straight to the intensity of a relationship, or a first relationship - the anguish, drama, the second guessing and the doubt, and the pure electricity of those first physical encounters' - Radio NZ on Catch Me When You Fall 'I found it to be compelling, challenging, and heartbreaking, but very real. It handles teen issues with grace and sensitivity but doesn't shy away from honesty.' - Tots to Teens on Pieces of You

It is the place she has returned to throughout her life, and fought for, one of many battles she has faced- ...'It was when I first went to school that I found out that I was a Maori girl . . . I found that being different meant that I could be blamed . . .' As she shows, her experiences - good and bad, joyous and insightful - have fuelled what became a focus of her life- 'I had made up my mind that writing was something I would always do.
