Title: Chains of Freedom
Author: Jess Mountifield
Genre: Historical Fiction
Chains of Freedom. An interesting book about a Maori tribe that has to learn how to live with invaders in their land. Not only British soldiers but also problems from an entirely different kind arrive.
Chains of freedom is well written and the story is easy to follow. It shows the problems that arise when cultures clash and the dangers that can arise when misunderstanding and miscommunication are piled on top of each other. Mrs. Mountifield has done her research for this book, the Maori characters really come out well.
