Heartland / by Pattrick, Jenny,

Publication: . 328 pages ; 24 cm.

A heartwarming tale set in Heartland NZ. Manawa, a small rural settlement in the shadow of Ruapehu. It used to be a bustling logging town but now seems to be inhabited by the sad remnants of modern life. They battle bureaucracy, weekend 'townies' and the weather but look out for each other in their own brand of community spirit. A reminder of how things used to be. Added 21/10/2014 by Kath
