'The voices come out of the night' Set in the port of Lyttleton, a community still recovering from World War I, the lives of four people with tragic pasts are intertwined by love, loss and a concern with raising the dead. There is Ro, the ex-army officer, who lies for a living - Nan, a young woman with genuine pyschic gifts - Louisa an attractive war widow, and Harry the shell-shocked former soldier, who becomes Ro's ultimate nemesis. Lessons are learnt, lives are changed and karma awards everyone what they deserve. Cover: Award-winning designer Keely O'Shannessy
