The Colour – Rose Tremain

Interesting as an account of the New Zealand gold rush of the 1860s, and the lure of ‘the colour’: gold. However, I didn’t warm to any of the characters, not even Harriet the main female lead who exchanges a governess’ life in England for that of an immigrant’s wife in New Zealand where she and her equally novice husband try to estalish a farm in the harsh conditions of the South Island, with mother-in-law in tow.
