Wonderful saga of an unfamiliar land

I never knew very much about New Zealand but this book had such a wonderful sense of place and history. The main characters were two women - Helen and Gwyneira- who met on a ship as they sailed from London in search of a better fate than they were destined for at home. Although their lives took very different paths upon arriving in the strange new land, their friendship lasts a lifetime. As with all multigenerational sagas, there were many characters to keep track of, but the author made their stories real and interesting: orphans from London sent as virtual slaves, sheep barons growing wealthy by stealing land from the peaceful and unsuspecting Maiori tribe, prospectors drawn by the promise of gold and untold riches, etc. ( )

I really loved this story. The characters were great. The setting in New Zealand was so interesting to me. This was a book that I found hard to put down. It's a long book but I was interested all the way to the end. I am excited to read the other books in this trilogy! There are some scandalous parts, it reminded me a little of Colleen McCullough's The Thornbirds. ( )

Londres, 1852: dos chicas emprenden la travesía en barco hacia Nueva Zelanda.
Para ellas significa el comienzo de una nueva vida como futuras esposas de unos hombres a quienes no conocen.

Ambas deberán seguir su destino en una tierra a la que se compara con el paraíso.
Pero ¿Hallarán el amor y la felicidad en el extremo opuesto del mundo?
