  • I’ve just read As the Earth Turns Silver (Alison Wong) which is set in early 20th century Wellington, so I’m intrigued to know more about the town and how it has changed. This blog is perfect! Thanks for the recommendation.

  • I’m glad this link is of interest to you until you can visit in person;-) I haven’t read that book. Would you recommend it?

  • Oh I’d love to visit some day. I thought it was a good book – especially to know more about New Zealand and its history.
