              Now a feature film, this is the unforgettable story of three women's intersecting lives. Makareta is the chosen one - carrying her family's hopes. Missy is the observer - the one who accepts but has her dreams. Mata is always waiting - for life to happen as it stealthily passes b...y. Moving from the forties to the present, from the country to the protests of the cities, Cousins is the story of these three cousins. Thrown together as children, they have subsequently grown apart, yet they share a connection that can never be broken. A stunning novel about tradition and change, about whanau and its struggle to survive, about the place of women in a shifting world. '. . . it is robust and powerful. I simply could not put it down. Lyrical and vibrant, smoothly paced and quietly rhythmic, Grace's language moves easily from one person to the next, as the stories unfold.' - Ngahuia Te Awekotuku, NZ Listener 'Cousins is an engrossing story that runs on in the head long after it has finished.' - Dominion Sunday Times 'Patricia Grace writes with an enviable clarity and power.' - Evening Post Cousins has been adapted for the screen, the film produced by Miss Conception Films and Whenua Films, directed by Ainsley Gardiner and Briar Grace-Smith, screenplay by Briar Grace-Smith and Patricia Grace.

              From the earliest days of European settlement in New Zealand, Maori have struggled to hold on to their land. Tensions began early, arising from disputed land sales. When open conflict between Maori and Imperial forces broke out in the 1840s and 1860s, the struggles only intensifi...ed. For both sides, land was at the heart of the conflict, one that casts a long shadow over race relations in modern-day New Zealand. Wars Without End is the first book to approach this contentious subject from a Maori point of view, focusing on the Maori resolve to maintain possession of customary lands and explaining the subtleties of an ongoing and complex conflict. Written by senior Maori historian Danny Keenan, Wars Without End eloquently and powerfully describes the Maori reasons for fighting the Land Wars, placing them in the wider context of the Maori struggle to retain their sovereign estates. The Land Wars might have been quickly forgotten by Pakeha, but for Maori these longstanding struggles are wars without end.

              The kids are hungry! One by one, Hohepa, Raniera and Hineraumati let Mama know that it's time to eat. She replies by telling them where to find the food. When the kids go to the fridge, the cupboard and the vegie basket, they can't see any food. It's only when Mama takes cha...rge that the ingredients come together, and the kids can sit down to some healthy hamburgers. Told entirely in simple te reo, with clear and colourful illustrations, this is a valuable storybook for younger readers in te reo Maori. It is one of the first two titles in a new series conceived by a team at Auckland Libraries to meet the need for children's books in languages other than English.
