Power and passion in a young country: the continuing story of a New Zealand woman ahead of her time.

Billie is society’s darling, living in style on the Otago Peninsula in the flourishing 1890s. She is in the thick of the action: women’s suffrage, workers’ rights, and the dress reform movement. The first Lebanese immigrants arrive at Port Chalmers, Billie is drawn to their exotic presence and lifetime friendships are forged. Life feels perfect until, at the dawn of the 20th century, it all starts to unravel. The Boer war, a troubled, husband, and the return of an old adversary – the stalwart Billie faces events that push her towards the edge of reason.
