Family Connections

We nearly all belong to families, or if on our own, most of us are part of friendship groups or even interest groups.

July and August was a time for my family of catching up with old friends and family and sharing memories and experiences.

There were friends from afar like our New Zealand and Australian cousins –

And then there was catching up with our sons and our old friends –
My current novel ‘Tarureka’, which I am currently working on, explores family relations and connections against a pioneering background. But although the background and life experiences are very different from ours, the emotional struggles and family ties that bind them together are similar to ours. It’s interesting and absorbing writing in a past historical time but basically, human beings and their relationships remain unchangeable.
