"For a Fee of 2 Shillings" - Cultural Heritage Shines Through in Astounding Novel About New Zealand
About the Book
The Maori culture is highlighted in this stirring tale set in pre- and post-World War II New Zealand society.
Intrigue and mystery shroud the beautiful young Maori woman, Miri. Her attempt to bring about her childhood obsession and fantasy to be other than she is creates a mantle of despair that hovers over her life. The choices she makes, the men in her life, and her mistakes impact her children’s lives, as well as those around her.
Fate has a way of confronting those who succumb to their own weaknesses. In this case, fate gives cause to examine religious and spiritual beliefs, family relationships, cultural expectations, bigotry, and prejudices. And it was all For a Fee of 2 Shillings.
About the Author
Faye Whittaker is an education director in New Zealand. This is her fourth book and first novel. “Several years ago, as a Supreme Court cadet, I met an aging lawyer who befriended me, encouraging me to attend university and obtain a degree in law. I thought highly of this man, although he revealed little of his own life. I found myself imagining his life story, and as a result, he became a central figure in my novel.”
