Telynor's Library, and then some

A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework,  and anything else I can think of.

Come on Shore and We Will Kill and Eat You All: A New Zealand Story - Christina Thompson I both liked and detested this book. A narrative that mixes the author's meeting her Maori husband and the life they built together in Boston and Australia, with too-brief snippets about the Maori encounters with Europeans. Parts of this book did work, but by the end, I was left with very mixed feelings. Only three stars and only somewhat recommended.
