New Zealand author

Rowie is pro-war and her sister Jo is a protester. And they're both in Vietnam. This is the compelling new story from the bestselling author of From the Ashes.

In 1969, at the height of the Vietnam war, nurse Rowie Leonard is serving a 12-month tour of duty. She supports the war and is committed to caring for wounded New Zealand and Australian troops. After a few months, however, she realises that nothing at all about the conflict is as clear-cut as she'd assumed. Her younger sister, Jo, is the opposite – a student at Auckland University, a folk singer and a fervent anti-war protestor. But when Jo falls for professional soldier Sam Apanui, home on leave to visit his ill father, she finds herself torn between her feelings and her convictions. As the three of them grapple with love, loss and the stresses and sorrows of war, each will be forced to confront and question everything they believed.

'Challinor is a good storyteller ... seamlessly joining fact and fiction and creating a convincing, atmospheric yarn.'
