    E–pub [Isle of Tears] By Deborah Challinor Deborah Challinor × 5 review Read & Download Isle of Tears Enjoyed the history side of it as wanted to learn about the maori wars Did think the rest of it was a bit too far fetched for my liking eg how could she know her way through heavy bush and get there so fast etc? Maybe that's me just being a bit picky but it just didn't really ring true and spoilt my overall enjoyment of the book I guess that's why I usually go for non fiction

Isle of Tears Free download ☆ 105 A vivid and compelling story of enduring love and divided families from one of our bestselling historical novelists When armed conflict drives a wedge between Maori and Pakeha not everyone can choose sides easily For Isla McKinnon the choices are bitter T. I m not a great fan of historical fiction probably the only novels in that genre that I ve read recently have been because they ve been highly recommended by a friend or have been part of a group read or challenge but having said that I do admire the enormous amount of research that goes into making one of these novels authenticDeborah Challinor is a successful author and a historian and so I expected this to be well written and engaging and it was I very much enjoyed it It s set in the 1860s when the New Zealand Land Wars began between the Maori who had been the people of the land for over a thousand years and the European settlers or should I say the European government and soldiers and details thoroughly the deceit and political manouevrings and prejudice and greed Et cetera But we follow the life of Isla a Scottish girl eldest in the family of Agnes and Donal immigrants who are eking out an existence well a reasonable existence but they ll never get rich on the land in Taranaki When the parents are brutally murdered Isla and her siblings Niel Jamie and Jean first believe it to be the work of marauding Maori who then capture them and lead them far away They uickly are told and eventually believe that in fact the Maori are adopting them knowing they would be unable to look after themselvesAnd so they live with the Ngati Pono fictional and become immersed in their lives Having no allegiance to the English and we know about the centuries of conflict between Scots and the English it s not at all difficult for them to do that And when their tribe joins in battle Isla and Niel are actively involvedIsla s story is a fascinating one We journey with her through grief and love and so many new experiences She s plucky and resourceful and also beautiful which doesn t hurt at all in an adventurous novel with love and strife throughout and genuine in her feelings and reactions What a lovely heroine and what an excellent book
