Coast Girl : A New Zealand Chronicle 1876-1979

ISBN: 9780473374013

Author: Rosemary Mercer    Publisher: Butterfly Creek Books

Rose Taylor, Nee Broughton was born on the West Coast in 1899. In the Grey Valley between Greymouth and Reefton her father had cleared land and made a farm. Rose lived her last fifty years in Wellington. Her house in Kelburn catered for humble and distinguished alike - among them an opium addict, pacifists, musicians, philosophers, friends, family and neighbours. Many returned again and again, for cups of tea, for meals or to stay. She could never resist the challenge of a journey, in New Zealand or abroad. Nevertheless, like her four sisters, Rose was always a Coast girl at heart.
