Wairaka Point is a gripping narrative based around actual events. The subjects and settings are diverse: New Zealand, legal investigation, rabies, fathers, US Marines, heroic women, Maori, ambiguity, possum trapping, advertising, Zimbabwe, families, World War II, adolescence, Melbourne, military coups, rugby, Afrikaans history, literature, Ghana, infidelity, rescue missions, British colonial crimes, rural life, trading commodities, The Acadians, Wellington, racism, forgotten islands, travel, memories, secrets, death, love.

However these are just the subjects and settings. The plot and theme are a profound discovery as to the nature of truth and destiny. Stella Rees is beautiful, smart and pragmatic, but still a romantic who is willing to risk her life travelling across a war-torn continent for a man she barely knows. It?s 1979 and her homeland of Africa is filled with racism, violence and uncertainty -- yet she is determined that her love for New Zealander Nick James is

worth it.

Little does she know Nick and his family harbor a deep secret, leaving her to wonder if she truly knows the man she was destined for. Spanning half a century and five countries, delving deep into how family history shapes who we are, Wairaka Point is a story about the truth and what it is to believe in something beyond doubt.
