Just beautifully described and portrayed. I was taken away with you for certain.
An incredible historical journey, well chronicled.
Very authentic. It is as though you were literally the MC telling your own real story.

I really liked this. I work with elementary children, and I could imagine expanding this story into a novel for young people. Good job!

I really enjoyed this narrative from one of the first settlers of New Zealand, especially since it pre-dates my own entry and I had read a little about it in my own research. Great job with this first person account!
It's all good, but I love the mention of the sandalwood...one of my favorite memories of India. Good job.
You thoroughly engaged this reader. I wanted to read more! This makes the beginnings of a great novel! :)
