Summary Set deep on the lush Samoan island of Upolu, this is the tale of a love woven by fate, parted by an unforgiving past, to be restored with courage. Marginalised at the outskirts of the village, Saili lives quietly with his wife Vaaiga and her teenage daughter Litia, until her brother Poto arrives unexpectedly and demands she return to her family, ending 17 years of banishment. With his neighbours encroaching on his land and his family threatened, Saili is forced to defy expectations and discover the depth and strength of his love for his wife and family
