"Richly imaginative and original, weaving together fact and fiction, it sets the remarkable story of Erenora against the historical background of the turbulent and compelling events that occurred in Parihaka during the 1870s and 1880s.

As her world is threatened, Erenora must find within herself the strength, courage and ingenuity to protect those whom she loves. And, like a Shakespearean heroine, she must change herself before she can take up her greatest challenge and save her exiled husband, Horitana"--Supplied by publisher.

A fiction book with lots of reference and notes on the events at Parihaka. A great read and a terrific illustration of Maori women during this time. Highly recommend this one.
