The Seer Stone

Hazel Menehira

The Seer Stone portrays the triumph of hope, love and family loyalty over adversity and tragedy. The story travels from the sinking of the excursion steamer, the Princess Alice, on the River Thames on 3 September 1878 (and the introduction of navigational laws), to New Zealand’s smaller paddle wheel vessels on the Whanganui River and the brave little cheese boats of Patea. These pages span more than a century as they entwine the lives of four generations of a resilient London East End family. A diamond gemstone retrieved from silt is the catalyst for the mission to find its rightful heritage. Published by Digital Print Australia, 2009.
