Summary (From the publisher):

It is 1859 in the raw new township of New Plymouth, where 15-year-old Hannah Carstairs walks between two worlds. To her English father she is Hannah; to her Maori stepmother and New Zealand-born brothers she is Hana - but only when Papa or her Aunt Frances aren't around. Soon Hannah finds both her worlds changing. First there are disturbing hints about her dead mother's past. Then the tension between Maori settlers boil over. With her family divided and war threatening to destroy everything she loves, she flees to England with her twin brother Jamie to discover the truth about their parentage - and to find out, in the drawing-rooms of England, whether she is in fact a respectable girl.
