Backwards Into the Future – Bronwyn Elsmore

Everyone knows you can’t go back. Everyone except Mary apparently, because here she is, back in her old hometown. That’s because of Kui, and Ana.

One of them is pushing her, the other is holding back, and between the two there’s much to be resolved.

The plum tree and the manuka have both gone, but a lemon tree thrives.

The mystery surrounding the Marakihau may never be solved, but if Ana returns too some things from the past can be recovered. Can’t they?
