Book Description Cape Catley 2002 Paperback, 2002. Condition: Mint. A love story on more than one level about Albion and Charlotte who have arrived in newly colonised New Zealand. From very different backgrounds they must carve out new lives in the bustling, still raw, settlement of Dunedin in the 1860s. They perceive each other, separate, and eventually come together in the traditional way. But what gives an edge to the story is Graham Billing's passionate involvement with the landscape of Otago. His writing is sensuous, often lyrical, absorbing in its evocation of time and place. Albion, employed by the Acclimatisation Society to set up New Zealand's first salmon hatchery, must preserve the vulnerable salmon eggs brought from England by sailing ship. When he is snubbed by the gentry he must do battle too, to find himself and see what he can offer to the woman he at last discovers he loves. About the author In turns tender, sardonic and passionate, The Blue Lion strikes a new note of hope in Graham Billing's writing career. But it is his last book. Graham died suddenly in December 2001, just as he was under way on a new novel. 178 pages. Seller Inventory # 919286
