The Journey of the Guardian Stone
1914, the waters of Whakaraupō ripple with tension of soldiers leaving for war…
Jean Fraser, a nurse at the Lyttelton Casualty Ward, and Kaito Nimura, an idealistic navy Lieutenant, meet by chance. Caught up in the romance and patriotic fervour, Kaito promises enduring love with his most precious possession, a guardian stone made by his beloved grandfather. While the battle for Gallipoli rages, their son Rory is born.
Spanning the vast Pacific Ocean and the chaos of two World Wars, The Journey of the Guardian Stone is a story of hope and resilience in the face of prejudice, deceit and lost love.
