This trilogy was absorbing in content, but thoroughly spoiled by the translation by an American. I would have given 5 stars for the story but was so disappointed as the translations were in American terms for English places and his misunderstanding of England were woeful. A priest in the Church of England does not have his first "rectorate" for example!! For a new perspective on immigration and sheep rearing, and the immigrants relations with the Maori people it is a really good read, so don't be put off by the infelicities. Good to be able to read a "landscape" book in one go and find out what happens to all the generations.

Having read the first two novels in this trilogy, I was looking forward to this concluding part. I was not disappointed!.The characterisation is excellent and the scenery of New Zealand South Island is beautifully described. The plot line captures the agonies of this time in New Zealand's history without being maudlin or sentimental. Sorry there is not going to be a part four!

Considering the amount of care Sarah Lark has put into researching these books of early colonisation of New Zealand you would think she would have taken the trouble to get a translator who had some idea of English as it is spoken and spelled in the UK and New Zealand. Whiskey for instance is Bourbon or Irish whiskey. Scottish whisky and single malt is what they would have been drinking. Bangs, gotten, Fall , acclimated, I could go on. Sloppy and ruined my enjoyment of an otherwise well written tale.

The third of htis series I couldn't wait to find out more of this family saga. I would say a good light holiday read not to be taken to seriously. There were some really obvious errors in the first book but forgivable as the story draws you in and you want to know what happens next. The errors were I realsed after the first book probably because this is a translated book (from German). The author's style is easy to read if not terribly stylish (again might be because of translation). Well worth a go.

The conclusion to the 'Land of the Long White Cloud' Family saga by Sarah Lark. Although I have to admit I took the easy way out and listened to the audio version that came along with my Kindle Unlimited copy.

I had at first thought that it was an electronic voice, but realised eventually that this was an incorrect impression. There were little things with it that I found annoying, such as 'said' pronounced 'sad' and sometimes no the correct intonation. However, on the whole it was enjoyable, and meant that I could bust through it quite quickly.

As far as the writing was concerned, it was probably the most harrowing of the three books. Although with the writing of Miss Lark I do find that whilst it's generally a good story told fairly well, the characters lack a little in texture and depth.

I do believe, however, that they are translations, and am perfectly willing to accept that this be a consequence of not reading it in the original, and thus authentic, voice of the writer themselves.

Apart from that I haven't any real criticism; thus, 4 star rating.

Having been engrossed by the first in the series, I also enjoyed the second and felt compelled to read the third and final book. Consistently well written with complex, flawed and interesting characters, the stories are evidently well researched and historically accurate.

In summary, I thoroughly enjoyed the trilogy and I am sad that I have finished it. Highly recommended.

i have been waiting for the right time to purchase this book as i knew from the other two books in the trilogy that i would not be able to put it dowm and i was right. i read it in a day. new storylines were a welcome deviation. Found some of the translation hard to make sense of and theMaori language off putting at times. Good but predictable ending. Much enjoyed. What to read now

I have read all three books in this saga of New Zealand sheep farmers, miners, the Maori and their families. I thoroughly enjoyed them and found them hard to put down. The hardships, highs and lows of the families are well described. The characters are well drawn and realistic. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys a family saga.
