Publisher Description

A reprint of one of Patricia Grace's best-loved novels about three girls and what happens as they grow up. Cousins is a stunning novel of tradition and change, of the whanau and its struggle to survive, of the place of women in a changing world. It is an engrossing story that runs on in the head long after it has finished. Makareta, Missy and Mata are the three female cousins of one of Patricia Grace's most popular novels. Moving from the forties to the present, from the country to the protests of the cities, Cousins is the story of three girls once thrown together and as women grown apart.
