The raw and powerful sequel to Once Were Warriors.

It is six years since Jake's daughter Grace hanged herself. Jake's wife, Beth, has left him, his son Nig was killed in a gangland fight - his only consolations are drink and his memories. His daughter, Polly, is determined to escape the violence that is destroying the Maoris. But can Jake, too, redeem himself?

Heavy, Good, and Needed

It is an honest representation of a part life that we'd all be worse off forgetting. We need these books, and books like them. They tell us the truth, what it is we can't live without hearing. Don't turn away because of the harshness of it.
