The McQuarries (Paperback)
Captain Hector McQuarrie a seasoned shipwright, sails from Mull Scotland in 1855 for a burgeoning new world in Australasia. Buoyed with bright hopes and infused with the Clan McQuarrie spirit, He courageously forges new endeavours, settling in Auckland New Zealand.
In this same spirit, young Euphemia McQuarrie juggles managing the home, falling in love, all while seeking independence, and challenging women's rights to equality, breaking out of society's constraints to win the right to vote.
However, they are tested to the core. While experiencing struggles and storms at home, at sea and economically, and after losing a mother and sister to tuberculosis, they must also accept that the same disease may yet claim another.
