Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
"In the Land of the Long White Cloud" is an amazing story of love and friendship.
The setting for this story is New Zealand, 1850s. Helen Davenport and Gwyneira Silkham are young, unwed English women from different backgrounds. Helen has to work to support her siblings. Gwyneira is the daughter of a wealthy sheep breeder. One fateful trip brings them together. As they start their lives in a new country, it is apparent this may not be the life of which they dreamed. However, they are strong women, not afraid of hard work or harsh living conditions.

I really enjoyed how the characters are intertwined, even the four-legged ones. It is obvious that the author, Sarah Lark, is an animal lover. Even though there is much sorrow and hardship for Helen and Gwyneira, at the end of the story I was left feeling hopeful.

The only issue I had with the story was the passage of time. Some of the years went by too fast. The story was so compelling; I wanted to read more about the years that were passed over.

I would recommend this book to any reader 16 or older. (Some of the subject matter is not suitable for younger readers.) This book was originally published in German and has been translated into English by D W Lovett.
