New York Times-bestselling author Dorothy Eden returns to her roots in this riveting romantic saga about an English family that carves out a new life in the primitive wilds of New Zealand . . . and the woman who uncovers their dark secret For Kate O'Connor, desperate to escape her tragic past in England, the opportunity to immigrate to New Zealand with Sir John Devenish and his wife and daughter is a chance to start over. Exhilarated by this wild, primitive place on the other side of the world, Kate's happiness is marred by a love she knows is taboo. When a sudden and suspicious death throws her life into turmoil, she begins to uncover the real reason the Devenish family left England. From a grand townhouse in London to a sheep farm in New Zealand, An Important Family is the story of a country in the midst of colonization-a transformation that parallels Kate O'Connor's own rite of passage into womanhood as she finds her future in a magnificent new land.
