New Zealand family history / genealogy. "Ian Stewart's moving portrayal of bygone days is much more than an intriguing family story. It also deals with social and military events and their effect on ordinary people. Set at first mainly in Edinburgh and in Orkney, the story moves on to Wellington, New Zealand, where the family built new lives in this furthest-flung part of the Empire. The conditions in Britain and the reasons for migrating are a reminder of the fortitude and determination of our forbears and their suffering and loneliness so far from their homeland." - from blurb on rear wrapper.
