Cousins


Mata, Missy and Makareta. Three cousins. Three lives. Separated by circumstances, yet bound together by blood. Orphaned Mata believes she has no whanau and lives out her childhood in fear and bewilderment. Back home on the land, Makareta flees an arranged marriage to study law and begin the search for her missing cousin. She leaves behind Missy who takes on her role of kaitiaki (guardian) of the land. As the years pass, loss of the family land seems imminent and the women's promise to bring their stolen cousin home seems more unlikely than ever, until a chance encounter changes everything. Based on the 1992 novel by Patricia Grace.
