Found in the NMIT Library. As someone who fluffed through this very novel to get her BA, I am allowed to roll on the Library floor and laugh hysterically in a fetal position.
But on to the joyous part. Today, in 1994, we arrived at Auckland for the third time as visitors; it was scheduled to be a 9 month stay, Ben going to school to learn English and I to be a woman of leisure. It turned out we never left, except for "visits". And while we miss our friends and family back home, I don't think we'll ever live anywhere else.
It took a further 2 years, 1 month and 12 days before we moved down to Nelson to live.
