    About " Yvonne Kalman "

  • Yvonne Kalman

    Yvonne Kalman author of the blockbuster trilogy The Greenstone Land, was born in Hawera and taught for fifteen years before becoming a full time writer in the later 1970s Her first book was a children s animal story, Sparkles 1979 , followed by Summer Rain 1980 and Midas 1983 , torrid romances released only on the American mass market She achieved international recognition when she broke into the American blockbuster market with The Greenstone Land 1981 , the first of a trilogy of three historical romances set in colonial Auckland The other two volumes in the saga were Juliette s Daughter 1982 and Riversong 1985 Bridge to Nowhere appeared in 1986, and then two further historical romances set in colonial Canterbury Mists of Heaven 1987 and After the Rainbow 1989.Kalman was the first New Zealand popular novelist to revive the historical romance in a major way after Edith Lyttleton G B Lancaster in the 1930s, although Georgina McDonald, in Grand Hills for Sheep 1949 and Stimson s Bush 1954 had written about colonial Otago and Southland, and in the 1960s 70s Frank Bruno, James Tullett and James Sanders wrote on historical subjects in the male genre of action and adventure Kalman s romances are colourful evocations of colonial life, laced with often lurid scenes of sex and violence, and written from the point of view of rebellious heroines struggling against the self seeking and often brutal behaviour of the rich and powerful with whom their destinies are enmeshed In the Greenstone Land trilogy, power is vested in the expanding Auckland business interests of a family dynasty, engaged in ruthless internecine feuds in Mists of Heaven and its successor, in the power politics of Canterbury s ruling colonial elites Despite their sensationalism the novels offer a richly detailed account of nineteenth century social customs hair and dress styles, cuisine and fashions in d cor and Juliette s Daughter in particular addresses nineteenth century race relations with considerable sensitivity.
