“Johanna Moran's debut novel is wonderfully accomplished, full of power and unpredictable relationships. This story of loss and surprising relationships has a historical component that's fresh and interesting.”

“Henry Oades' decision to move his family to New Zealand for a job proves crucial when his wife and children are kidnapped and presumed dead at the hands of native tribesmen. He moves to America and marries a young widow, only to find his first wife and children on his doorstep one day. They move in with his new family and Henry eventually face charges of bigamy. Based on a true story, this book goes right to the top of the list for book clubs.”
