The storm snaps the mast of a boat and the sound of old wood hitting bone wakes Antoinette. Across the harbour Grace sets down her cup of tea and watches it shudder as the wind shakes the house. And a hundred and fifty years ago the same storm slams into the boat which carries Eliza to New Zealand. This is no ordinary storm.Weathered Bones tells the story of Antoinette, a widowed grandmother, Grace, an emotional young wife, and Eliza, the lighthouse keeper from another century, in a book of dark water, flowers and midnight paintings.Inspired by the real-life character of New Zealand's first permanent keeper of the light, Eliza becomes a presence in Grace and Antoinette's lives, demanding an audience, a voice and perhaps even a life of her own in the present day . . . 'This is spine-shivering territory, the haunted past reaching out to touch the present, and turn it on its head. A book full or 'real' women from an exciting new writer.' Dame Fiona Kidman
