Summary

In the exhilarating conclusion to the internationally bestselling In the Land of the Long White Cloud trilogy, the spirited Warden and McKenzie clan continues its trials - and triumphs - in New Zealand and beyond.
The great-granddaughter of Gwyneira McKenzie - who arrived in New Zealand as a naïve young bride in In the Land of the Long White Cloud - Gloria Martyn has enjoyed an idyllic childhood at Kiward Station, her family’s sprawling sheep farm in the Canterbury Plains. When her parents send word from Europe that it’s time for Gloria to become a proper “lady” by attending boarding school half a world away in England, Gloria must leave everything and everyone she loves most in the world, including her steadfast protector Jack McKenzie. Wrenched from her beloved homeland and struggling to fit in with the stifling strictures of British boarding-school life, Gloria has never felt more alone. Upon discovering that her parents have no intention of ever sending her home, Gloria takes matters into her own hands and sets off on an adventure that will change her forever.
A stirring coming-of-age tale of love, loss, endurance, shame, and redemption that takes readers from the lush plains of New Zealand’s South Island to the bloody shores of Gallipoli, across Australia’s Northern Territory and beyond, Call of the Kiwi is a profoundly satisfying conclusion to the saga that has captured readers’ hearts across the globe.

New Zealand thru WWII, 3rd in Trilogy GREAT FINISH

WOW! This last book in the trilogy is excellent. Gwyn and James live on the sheep farm together well into their golden years, while Kura and William are still flitting around Europe singing . . . Their daughter, Gloria longs to come home to New Zealand, but her parents, not remembers their own youthful desires, force her into their own "mold" . . . The saga which began with Land of the Long White Cloud concludes with Call of the Kiwi . . . and this last book is deep, sad, and oh, so sweet . . . culminating perfectly.

TERRIFIC STORY(IES)

What made the experience of listening to Call of the Kiwi the most enjoyable?

Not since I read Mitchner's Hawaii, have I found an epic story of multi generations and cultures with such appeal. Ms Lark character development was exceptional. At times it does bog down sentimental rhetoric but it does not seem to take away from the story.

What about Anne Flosnik’s performance did you like?

It is hard.not to be a fan of Anne Flosnik. She has a wide range voices and is extremely articulate.
