« La légende veut que les premiers Maoris arrivèrent en pirogue depuis la Polynésie. La première image qu'ils eurent de la Nouvelle-Zélande fut cette île enveloppée d'un long nuage blanc. D'où le nom qu'ils lui donnèrent. » Londres, 1852. Helen, préceptrice de deux enfants dans une riche famille, répond à une annonce qui propose à des jeunes femmes de partir épouser des Britanniques installés en Nouvelle-Zélande. Sur le bateau qui la mène à Christchurch, elle se lie avec Gwyneira, une jeune noble galloise qui immigre à cause des difficultés financières de son père. L'amitié entre les deux femmes sera indéfectible malgré les épreuves, les désillusions et la haine, surtout, qui déchirera leurs deux familles. Mais elles auront la joie de voir leurs enfants s'unir et inventer une nouvelle vie, en osmose avec les autochtones et la nature. Le Pays du nuage blanc, à la faune et à la flore hors du commun, est un personnage à part entière de cette « saga grandiose sur la colonisation de la Nouvelle-Zélande et la culture des Maoris. » (Der Spiegel)

From the author of Toward the Sea of Freedom comes a novel of the triumphs, tragedies, and courage of two women bravely changing the tide of history... As the nineteenth century draws to a close, the struggle for women's suffrage has finally reached New Zealand. But when the tide of change rolls in, it threatens to engulf two young women from very different backgrounds, who are coming of age amid the tumult. Torn between the two worlds that make up her heritage, Matariki Drury is the daughter of a successful white businesswoman and a descendant of Maori royalty. Scarred by poverty and hoping to make a new life for herself in this strange and forbidding land, Violet Paisley is the middle child of a poor Welsh coal-mining family. Drawn together by their shared commitment to social change, and tested by traumas that neither of them could foresee, these two independent-minded women will find themselves thrust onto the front lines of the fight for equal rights and racial justice. To win their place in this world, they must learn to rise above their personal pain and choose a path of reconciliation rather than retribution.

In the chaos of World War II, Polish teenagers Helena and Luzyna Grabowski have lost everything. Without parents or a home, they are shipped to a refugee camp in Persia, where the days ahead hold only darkness. When they hear that orphans are being selected for relocation to New Zealand, Helena is filled with hope--until the officials say they have a place only for her younger sister. On the morning she is to be transported, Luzyna fails to join the chosen group, and Helena takes her place. But the horrors of war--and her guilt at abandoning her sister--follow Helena on the journey across the sea, as a man from her past preys on her fear and remorse. Though the people in New Zealand embrace her, the traumas Helena has suffered threaten her peace and blind her to the devotion of James, a charming, heroic young Allied pilot. If Helena can let go and dare to hope again, she may finally step out of the long shadow of her past to find a future made whole--a new community, a new family, a new love.
