JULIETTE’S DAUGHTER (YVONNE KALMAN)
This is an older New Zealand historical romance. When I read it I was totally enveloped in Victorian Auckland, the social structure and the way relationships formed in such a strict, judgemental environment. It felt like going back in time. Times have definitely changed! May, the heroine, was a compelling character, and the difficulties she faced were confronting, but still realistic for the time. And of course there was a happily-ever-after, with a hero who understood her unconventionality. This book is part of a series, but was particularly memorable because it ended with news of the Tarawera eruption…
