Publisher's Summary

Bold new paths in life and love are forged in nineteenth-century New Zealand in the stirring final chapter of bestselling author Sarah Lark’s multigenerational Fire Blossom Saga.

It’s 1880 in the North Island town of Otaki, where Aroha lives contentedly with her mother, Linda - until a fateful tragedy leaves Aroha traumatized and plagued by a cursed guilt. For the long recovery ahead, Aroha is sent to Rata Station, a thriving sheep farm that Aroha’s mother and grandmother once called home. Linda knows it’s the perfect place for her daughter to heal, find hope, and start a life she can call her own.

On South Island, Aroha soon develops a bond with her relatives, who are looking toward the future, too. Aroha’s cousin March is a vivacious, business-minded beauty who wants to take advantage of New Zealand’s burgeoning industrial age. Robin is a delicate young man and an aspiring actor as fearful of his father’s disapproval as he is desperate to run from it. And then there’s Aroha, who sees unexpected opportunity in the growing tourism trade beyond the continental plains.

Through personal trials, professional compromises, great love, profound loss, and a struggle to survive, Aroha, March, and Robin will discover their true destinies. A country is in flux, and a generation of ambitious and resilient young dreamers is changing with it in this exhilarating conclusion to an epic saga.

Excellent!

Absolutely love this series. I was hooked after the first one, then the second, and now the third. I feel like I was educated, entranced, and enraged, all in the same book. Fantastic work! keep them coming!

Great book! Great Series!

Thank you for making New Zealand come to life with vivid and believable characters. I love the historical references and how you bring life to even your fictional characters. I also enjoy the happy ending. I'm a bit of a sap in that regard!

Excessive peril! Possible spoiler alert?

I listened to the first 2 volumes of this very long “saga”. I really enjoyed the first two and though they too had the characters endure hardships and danger it wasn’t to excess. This one though… UGH. I almost pulled the plug with 5 hours left because one of the characters was so clueless I no longer felt any sympathy for him and his “troubles”. Instead, I just wanted to be done with him!
I did listen to the end, but you get there the author throws in ONE MORE unnecessary plot twist of evil, before ending on the expected high note.

Excellent Historical Fiction

This was a captivating story of the early pioneers of New Zealand. The characters came to life in every chapter.

Just bad.

The first two books in this series are really good, but I’ve no idea what this story is doing. Plot line is weak and flits between characters without a fraction of the depth from book one. Felt quite pointless tbh. I’d enjoy the first two and skip this one nothing really happens.
