As the reader you are moved from being totally exasperated with Cissy and utterly disgusted with Seth, to being moved to levels of understanding you never thought possible. You want to take Cissy and shake some sense into her, and then you are made to see the difficulties she is under and why it is so hard for her to change. You hate Seth for what he does and then you realise he is the result of early modelling and is a victim himself - he knows no different.
You become aware there are no easy answers or simple solutions to their plight.
You feel the fear, the uncertainty and the utter hopelessness, and on the flip side you see them reaching out for comfort, trying to be a part of something shared, to be someone of value.
Seamlessly slipping between the lines is the essence of New Zealand and its scenery and wildlife creating a comforting familiarity and respite - until the next time.
Just when you think things are taking a turn for the better, the author takes you down the frustrations of the judicial process the couple must face, which merely serves to enhance their situation to the point where they can take no more.
