A Long Journey-Steam to Cyber - a Gracie Stathers' Novel
Published by Wallace Publishing NZ
The 1800s. The long journey begins with four families during a time of great poverty. Forced by circumstances beyond their control, when the steam age is in full throttle, family men are transported to the other side of the world. They leave behind loved ones: wives, children, friends, and their beloved homeland. Each family shares their stories of hardship and betrayal, and the strength and love they find to overcome these challenges.
The journey takes us to the 1900s, when Hannah and Richard marry, bringing the four families together as one, and leading the way into the 21st century when sailing ships and steam trains give way to the age of cyber technology.
