Laurel Maynard, bought up in a world of privilege, in Wellington by her New Zealand European father, Colin.  She is forced to spend the summer in the sticks with her mother Doctor Ana Kingi, who abandoned her as a baby.
As Laurel is drawn into the fabric of the small town she meets Romeo, a boy taken off the streets of South Auckland by his Uncle, Robert McGregor, Ana’s childhood friend.  She also comes up against Mauki, a tough misunderstood local girl carrying a burden almost impossible to bear.
Together, Laurel and Ana discover how alike they really are.  They unravel the past which kept them apart and uncover a seething pool of secrets, some, with the power to tear families apart.
Heart of the Tapu Stone is a story about connections, not just blood and family. A classic “fish out of water” tale, where city and country and maori and pakeha meet....

Life on the McGregor Farm has changed over the last 3 years...  

 

Laurel learns happily ever isn’t a reality.  

Her relationship with Romeo is tense, her parents have moved on with their lives and her best friend Mauki is leaving on her OE.  

Then something unthinkable happens that rocks the foundation of her world.   

This is not how her life was supposed to turn out.   

Mauki is set to leave on the trip Mina always wanted for her but it’s so much more.

As Mauki leaves, a number of people return to force the rest of the whānau to face their past.  

All decisions create consequences...

CREATING THE AUDIO BOOK 

Working together is  nothing new for our Whānau.  But for some of us, this project was stepping way out of our comfort zone. 

So we went out and found the best.  'Suite as Studios',  Titahi Bay.  With sound and production engineer Maaka Phat.  He made everyone comfortable and relaxed and we did it.  Lots of laughter, tears and beautiful prose...Magic....
