The first volume about the Plumb family. Plumb is a minister whose disenchantment with the Church, and involvement with Socialism, leads to his becoming a conscientious objector, and, subsequently, imprisonment. NZ Interest. [Small font]
Comments from GroupsExcellent characterisation of Plumb. Great discussion. Very good portrayal of life at that time. Taupo 003 Much discussion on people who focus solely on what they want in life with no regard for others. Putaruru 001 Maurice Gee is such a great writer. Napier 011 Reasonably well thought of but many found it a bit dour. Wellington 085 We all loved this book. A very emotional discussion, a sign of a good book. Several of us had not read any of this author's work but will read more. Whakatane 006 His [author's] writing is superb. We did some research; realising it was based on his grandfather was interesting. Wellington 071
Most of our group enjoyed this book. George Plumb's narration throughout the book stimulated great discussion. Very well-written.
