The Time Before The Time to Come

Author: Jill Johnson

Set between London and New Zealand and intertwining past and present, The Time Before The Time To Come follows Victoria’s journey as she rediscovers her Maori heritage and embarks on a path of self-discovery, unwrapping layers of her past to try to make sense of her present.

The Time Before The Time To Come beautifully encapsulates the family ties that exist from one generation to the next and explores the significance of holding on to your heritage as a way of not letting go of yourself. With strong women, epic journeys and heartbreaking revelations this is at its heart a book of hope and love.
