The Trowenna Sea

Author(s): Witi Ihimaera

New Zealand Fiction

Hohepa Te Umuroa is with Te Rauparaha at the Wairau killings in the 1840s, and at Boulcotts Farm in the Hutt Valley when white settlers lose their lives. Convicted of insurrection, he and four companions are transported to the convict town of Hobart to serve their sentences. Ismay Glossop and her doctor husband Gower McKissock have also come to Tasmania, via Nelson, New Zealand. On Maria's Island near Hobart, their lives intersect with the five Maori, with unexpected consequences. Witi Ihimaera returns from rewriting his early books with this brand-new novel, a compelling historical drama that places one of New Zealand's master storytellers at the height of his powers. First published November 2009.
