            A celebration of life and death. A book to make you laugh and cry. A deep, funny and personal story about the lives of New Zealand's favourite undertakers, Francis and Kaiora Tipene. Born and raised in Northland, the married couple and parents to five boys now star in the third s...eries of their own reality television show The Casketeers, a show about day-to-day life (and death) at their Auckland funeral business, Tipene Funerals. This is Francis and Kaiora's story, a story about a modest yet richly cultural Maori upbringing in the communities of Pawarenga and Kaitaia, the trials and tribulations of their love and marriage, the joy of raising five sons, and the dedication and mahi required to grow a business. It's also a book about traditions of tangihanga, tikanga Maori and Polynesian ways of morning the dead. Inspirational, hilarious, and wise: this is a book to make you see dying, grief and remembrance in a totally new light.

            My heart is less than 1% of my body, it weighs hardly anything; it's only a tiny piece of me, yet it's the part Helen finds most interesting. . .Once it was inside her body, a tiny piece of the son she gave birth to. Now her boy is gone and his heart is keeping me alive. Born wit...h a heart defect, Vivienne Clark's life was saved by a transplant. Now a journalist, she doesn't allow herself to think about the donor, the boy who died so she could live; she can't bear to. Then she meets his mother, Helen, who wants something in return for Vivi's second-heart heart: her help to find all the other people who have tiny pieces of her son. She needs to meet them, to speak to them, in order to make sense of her own loss - to be sure that they deserve the precious gifts they were given. Reluctantly drawn into Helen's mission, Vivi agrees to trace the other recipients. One by one she brings together a small group of strangers, united by a single experience. As their lives begin to intertwine - growing close, becoming friends, enemies, even lovers - Vivi finds herself at the centre of a new kind of family, a tiny little piece of a whole. And through the fresh joys, and deep sadness, which all their stories bring, Vivi discovers that she might just be braver than she ever imagined...
