New Zealand Author SG Smith Releases Part 3 of Te Kererū – Stretching Her Wings, And It’s Her Best work yet

Te Kererū - Part 3: Stretching Her Wings - by SG Smith is out now

Give yourself the gift of New Zealand Fiction…!

Part 3 of SG Smith‘s novel, Te Kererū dropped the other day. You need to buy it. It’s the Christmas present you didn’t know you needed.

If you haven’t been following along, SG Smith is – of course – my wife and everything written here is also – of course – my completely biased opinion.

What’s this all about?

That’s a good question and it’s one that we have tackled before. Here are some of our previous posts on Te Kererū if you want to dig into them:

But really… what’s the story about?

The Kererū is the New Zealand native wood pidgeon, but this is not a story about birds.

Rather it’s the nickname of a enigmatic young Pākehā orphan girl who is adopted by a prestigious Māori family after her own family is killed in a terrible landslide.

Our protagonist, the lovely, but rather odd Kate Taylor, is growning up and Te Kererū -(that’s her nickname) needs to stretch her wings.

What’s emerging in Book 3 is a young woman’s coming of age story, and an “Anne of Green Gables” meets Māori and Pākehā cultural dynamics in a speculative future NZ timeline

It’s a feel-good story for the ages and you should read it now before Taika Waititi purchases the movie rights.

How do i buy Te Kererū?

If you read on below you’ll see the sales page for Part 3 of Te Kererū. It’s USD$4.99 and available as an ebook through Gumroad. It also comes bundled with Parts 1 and 2 in case you haven’t read them already.
