by Julia Bourne
A hyperactive son, mounting debts and a stressful lifestyle result in drastic action. Julia and Henry seek to escape by selling their house and going to New Zealand: a quirky country that has attracted them because they love the Lord of the Rings film trilogy. With their children Joe, seven and Freya, aged three, they travel extensively on both islands in their own motorhome, searching for film sites, trying daring activities, discovering hidden parts of this magnificent country and hidden parts of themselves, as their family relationships are tested. Before they travel to New Zealand, this rather chaotic family decide to do a warm-up in their own country, touring Britain in a battered old car and caravan, wild camping in strange places,meeting fellow home educators and getting into some humorous scrapes.
