Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Amiria was born on the East Coast nearly one hundred years ago. The story begins with her birth at Tuparoa, a childhood spent in both her grandmothers' raupo hut and the magnificient Williams homestead, Kaharau. It leads the reader through Amirias school days, her taumau or arranged marriage to Eruera Stirling, farming on the East Coast, then latter days with Eruera as revered elders in Auckland.
