Description

A novel about food, whānau and mental illness.

Valerie reads George Eliot to get to sleep - just to take her mind off worries over her patients, her children, their father and the next family dinner.

Elena is so obsessed with health, traditional food, her pregnancy and her blog she doesn't notice that her partner, Malcolm the ethicist, is getting himself into a moral dilemma of his own making.

Evie wants to save the world one chicken at a time. Meanwhile her boyfriend, Michael, is on a quest to reconnect with his Māori heritage and discover his
own identity.

Rosa is eight years old and lost in her own fantasy world, but she's the only one who can
tell something's not right.

"An accomplished story of a family in crisis - Ritchie's great skill is her ability to conjure the inner lives of her characters. Fishing for Māui is a compassionate meditation on what it means to be well."
- Sarah Jane Barnett
