This interesting novel is about a Canadian man Conrad attached to his birth family than to his wife and child who reluctantly finds himself travelling to New Zealand to search for his older brother Francis It s their mother s dying wish that she should see him again father tried a few years ago to find Francis but was unsuccessful One might feel sorry for Conrad having to fly halfway round the world on what could well be a wild goose chase unable to have the same last precious times with his mother that his father and sister can getting the runaround from strangers who clearly know than they re saying if only Conrad didn t whinge so muchI enjoy books that prove that you don t have to like the characters in order to get totally involved in the story In fact I got uite cross with Conrad and I got cross with some of the other characters who were keeping secrets there s nothing uite as annoying as people who tell you they know something or allude to it in an obvious way but then won t tell you what it is so clearly the author has managed to press my buttons That s goodI also really enjoyed the setting it s always a pleasure to read about one s own place and Millen has done an excellent job describing the towns and countryside in a way both accessible to New Zealanders and to people who have never been here The emotional and spiritual setting is also fascinating what was going on in the mind and heart of Francis who went to NZ as a schoolteacher and ended up training for the Catholic priesthood And is Conrad going to learn anything of worth to himself

When I started reading this I thought it was way out of my comfort zone It is set in 2004 so it isn t historical fiction and there was no old family secret to unearth But as I continued reading I realized that it wasn t so terribly different from what I usually read And there WAS a big family mystery that had to be figured out after allAnd while it was the familiarity of solving that mystery that kept me turning the pages it was the main character s journey that really made me think Conrad went of a journey not just from Canada to New Zealand but also on a journey of faith and familyI will admit that it was a bit theological than I had expected and than I normally enjoy I didn t mind the religious plot but some of the ideas were beyond me I tried to keep track but I did get confused in some placesThe author definitely created a compelling story though I could not wait to finish this book because I HAD to find out what happened to Frankie The ending was not a disappointment It made sense It was rightAs I followed Conrad all around New Zealand I thought about how much research Mr Millen must have done He combined the catholic religion with the beliefs and language of the native people He used these characters and beliefs to show what faith and family really meansI am so thankful to Mr Millen for giving me the opportunity to read and review his novel If you are looking for something a little different something that will make you stop and think then I suggest you give it a try
