This is Us (eBook)

USD $22.99

New Zealanders in our own words

This is Us is a collection of over 200 brief interviews with New Zealanders, spanning the length and breadth of the country; from Cape Reinga to Stewart Island. It was written in response to the Christchurch terrorist attack but is not about it; it is instead a representation of the New Zealand people in their own words. A celebration of the diverse, open, and inclusive communities that exist across New Zealand, This is Us inspires hope by showing the kindness and spirit of everyday people.

Each interview provides a snapshot of the subject’s life, accompanied by a photographic portrait. The joy interviewees felt in telling their stories shines from the page. Each of the interviewees has a unique story to tell, and to have them collected in one place creates an engaging and insightful reading experience that will delight anyone interested in finding out more about Kiwi society and culture.

Carter spoke with characters from a variety of professions, age groups and cultural backgrounds. From a New Zealander with a long line of Kiwi ancestors, to a person with a Māori name but Italian and Brazilian parents, this collection reflects the ethnic diversity and cultural riches of New Zealand. This is Us is a tribute to the Kiwi spirit.

We have all felt fear, whether it’s our racing heart as we make a speech or the profound awareness of our own mortality as we await medical results.

Of course, the flip-side of fear is courage, as Nelson Mandela famously said, ‘I learned that courage was not the absence of fear but the triumph over it.’

25 true stories capture the full range of the fear and courage experience in the second book of the ‘Timeless Wisdom’ Series. At times humorous, often poignant, these stories shine a light on just what it means to be human.

Purple Dandelion (eBook)

USD $9.99

The book Purple Dandelion is the true story of Farida Sultana, an extraordinary Muslim woman and single mother, whose remarkable life began in Bangladesh when as a young girl, she found herself in conflict with her traditional family values and the Islamic culture that prevents girls and women from learning music and arts. Later her arranged marriage to a doctor at the age of 18 took her to war-torn Iran with her husband and young daughter, then to the UK, and finally to New Zealand. Her personal journey included episodes of domestic violence as she sought to find herself and her true role in the world.

Purple Dandelion brings to life the experiences and struggles of some of these courageous women. In recent years Farida has been working in Asian and Middle Eastern countries encouraging women to condemn violence and claim their human rights.

Daughter of the Reich: The incredible life of Louise Fox (eBook)

USD $9.99

This is a story of an ordinary girl from Germany who became caught up in the inner workings of the Nazi war machine.  Louise Fox had grown up while the Nazis steadily took full control of the country and like so many of her age group Nazism was considered to be just normal.  As a teenager she was first involved in the effort to provide anti-aircraft equipment for the Luftwaffe and to kit out Rommel for the North African campaign.  She was a hard worker and was promoted to the rank of captain in the Luftwaffe’s supreme command headquarters in Potsdam, near Berlin.  She caught Hermann Goering’s eye when he awarded her a medal for bravery in the capture of a downed British airman, and was sent to work in the Air Ministry making appointments and assisting Goering.  As the war intensified on two fronts Louise was transferred back to Potsdam to manage the huge task of securing appropriate ammunition supplies for the Luftwaffe, a job she held for the rest of the war.

She married an airman who three weeks later was killed in action.  Louise was posted with her colleagues to the Eastern Front and escaped with them all in Hitler’s “strategic retreat” ahead of the Red Army.  In the last few months of the war she was captured and imprisoned by the Americans.  She escaped and began an event-filled 1,000-kilometre hike to the safety of relatives.  Life was difficult after the war and Louise entered the black market and was imprisoned.  She eventually found a pen pal in Tasmania and much to the amazement of friends migrated there – selling Volkswagens to make a living.
