Wild Side
Wild Side
There is hope for the addicts, the rebels, and the broken-hearted.

Sitting in prison on a raft of charges including kidnapping, guns, drugs and counterfeiting was very different to the scenario Janet had imagined.

Her life had become a psychotic hybrid of Breaking Bad and Paranormal Activity. There had to be a divine intervention or things were just not going to end well. How did a country girl from a decent family become a hardcore Meth-addict? What would you do if you were visited by a demon with a deadly agenda? Janet's quest to find her true identity and the meaning of life took her to the very brink of death and hell.

It nearly killed her but Janet got her answers... insight into true spiritual power, treasures found in the darkness, and real answers about life.

Wind at my Back
Wind at my Back
`I was a lost little boy, trapped in a world where I didn't belong, one that would tear me apart and build me back into someone new . . .'

Twenty-three-year-old Josh Komen is on track to represent New Zealand in running at the next Commonwealth Games when he is diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. In a single moment, the course of his life has changed irrevocably. What follows are years of excrutiating pain, brutal treatments both in New Zealand and Australia, and shocking side-effects that send a young man to the brink of despair and back innumerable times.

Ultimately, it is the enduring love of his close-knit family and friends, the incredible medical professionals who treat him, his spiritual beliefs, and his passion for nature that carry Josh through the hardest of challenges.

The life lessons Josh gathers along the way are an inspiration for us all. This is an incredible story of courage, love and endurance.

Windows on a Womens World The Dominican Sisters of Aotearoa NZ
Windows on a Womens World The Dominican Sisters of Aotearoa NZ
The first 10 Dominican sisters arrived in Dunedin in 1871. The congregation expanded rapidly, establishing schools throughout Otago and Southland, and eventually reaching as far north as Auckland.For most of their first century in New Zealand the Dominican sisters were teaching nuns, living in large enclosed convents cut off from the outside world. In the mid-1960s the Second Vatican Council ushered in a period of radical change. The sisters moved out of their convents and into small homes in their local neighbourhoods; out of their schools and into new roles in education, social justice, pastoral care and spirituality. Today they are an ageing congregation that is diminishing in size.Susannah Grant was given full access to the congregations rich archives in order to write this book, from the point of view of an outsider. She has also completed a large number of oral histories with the sisters.
In this moving and beautifully written book she chronicles the astonishing transformation of the New Zealand Dominican sisters from a strictly enclosed body of religious teachers to a congregation of religious women who are integrated in the wider community and engaged in a range of active ministries, while still remaining deeply committed to shared Dominican ideals.

With Them Through Hell NZ Medical Services in the First World War
With Them Through Hell NZ Medical Services in the First World War
For New Zealanders, the First World War was not just a grueling conflict but also the nation's biggest health challenge. Military personnel had to deal with horrific injuries caused by high velocity bullets, artillery fire and chemical weapons. Infectious diseases were a constant and grave threat. Health professionals prepared and supported the 100,000 New Zealand servicemen and servicewomen who served overseas, while those who stayed at home had to fill the gaps left by absent colleagues. In the midst of this, the devastating 1918 influenza pandemic hit both troops overseas and New Zealanders at home. For the first time, this book tells the collective story of how our troops were supported and cared for by dedicated teams of doctors, nurses, dentists, ambulance officers, orderlies and sanitation and hygiene workers, and the important role of veterinarians in caring for horses. It explores the coming of age of New Zealand health services and details such significant figures as Henry Pickerill and Harold Gillies, who rebuilt shattered faces and treated burn victims - in doing becoming the fathers of plastic surgery. Battlefield Medicine celebrates the way New Zealanders delivered the best of healthcare under the most difficult circumstances.

Woman in the Wilderness
Woman in the Wilderness
This book tells how one woman learned to dig deep and push the boundaries in order to discover what really matters in life.Miriam is a young Dutch woman living in the heart of the mountains with her New Zealand husband. She lives simply in a tent or hut, and survives by hunting wild animals and foraging edible plants, relying on only minimal supplies. For more than six years she has lived this way, through all seasons, often cold, hungry and isolated in the bush. She loves her life and feels free, connected to the land, and happy.There's a lot of drama out there in the wild, and Miriam knows how to spin a good yarn. This is a gripping and engaging read reminiscent of both adventure writing like Wild and nature writing like H is for Hawk, and is perfect for anyone exploring the idea of living a more authentic, real life.'My life is free, random and spontaneous. This in itself creates enormous energy and clarity in body and mind.' Miriam Lancewood

Women Equality Power Selected Speeches from a Life of Leadership
Women Equality Power Selected Speeches from a Life of Leadership
Helen Clark has been a political leader for more than 40 years, since first running in local elections in the 1970s. She entered parliament as a 31-year-old in 1981, led the Labour Party to victory in 1999 and was Prime Minister of New Zealand for nine years. She then took on a critical international role as Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme in New York.

One of her key focuses throughout this time has been the empowerment of women and she has paved the way for other women to step up and lead.

With a foreword by the Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister of New Zealand, this is a timely and important book.


'If more issues of importance to women are to rise to the top of political, legislative and budget priorities, more women must sit at the top tables . . . Women must be drivers of development, not just passive beneficiaries of plans designed by others.' Helen Clark ONZ

'Helen Clark often said, and continues to say, that having women in leadership positions not only sends a powerful message to other women but also changes societies' perceptions of gender roles and encourages girls to believe that no door is closed to them.' Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister of New Zealand

'Helen Clark has reshaped our views on women and politics and the right of women to take up the mantle of political leadership.' Professor Jennifer Curtin, University of Auckland
