            Brave, explosive, and thought-provoking, this is a powerful memoir. 'It's material, make a story out of it,' was the mantra Charlotte Grimshaw grew up with in her literary family. But when her life suddenly turned upside-down, she needed to re-examine the reality of that material.... The more she delved into her memories, the more the real characters in her life seemed to object. So what was the truth of 'a whole life lived in fiction'? This is a vivid account of a New Zealand upbringing, where rebellion was encouraged, where trouble and tragedy lay ahead. It looks beyond the public face to the 'messy reality of family life - and much more'.

            There was a moment in Australia's European history when two women wielded extraordinary power and influence behind the scenes of the fledgling colony. One was Elizabeth Macquarie, the wife of the new governor Lachlan Macquarie, nudging him towards social reform and magnificent bu...ildings and town planning. The other was Elizabeth Macarthur, the wife of John Macarthur, a dangerous enemy of the establishment, who is herself credited with creating Australia's wool industry. These women should, in normal circumstances, have been bitter foes. But this novel explores what happens when two women of vision and courage are thrown together in impossible times.

            Wendyl's mother suffered from Alzheimer's, and during her last days she told Wendyl the most amazing stories of her life. It was as if her failing memory was delving back into the past in one final desperate attempt for it to be remembered. Being adopted into a family who didn't ...really need or want her, Wendyl's mother had a difficult childhood. When Wendyl heard about the family secrets in her mother's background, she was determined to get to the bottom of them. What she found were some quite extraordinary stories of loss, grief and love. Written in a warm, accessible style, this compelling and moving story is about mothers and daughters, aging and the way deep family traumas echo down through the generations. It is also spliced with wisdom on caring for someone with dementia or Alzheimer's.
