The Passionate Puritan
Set in 1912, The Passionate Puritan follows young teacher Sidney Carey to an isolated kauri-milling community in the far north. She discovers romance there, but will she be able to seize it, or will puritanical conventions spoil her life? Social progress and conservatism battle for supremacy in the vivid setting off the Puhipuhi in the days of the old timber industry.
