A wry, touching short story from one of New Zealand's best-loved writers. When Uncle Rangiora visits his sister and dances with her in the garden, she knows she has to visit the place where he died, and where he and other of his comrades from the Maori Battalion were buried during the Second World War. His sister is an old woman now, her husband is even older, but that's not going to stop them from setting off across the world alone, to the great consternation of their children who wonder if they will ever get there and back. This moving and entertaining story is a fictionalised version of the trip to Tunisia taken by the author's elderly parents. Musing upon postcolonial politics and perspectives, it also considers the lyrical form the author used at the beginning of his literary career and the wit, style and drama that readers can discover in his newer works.

From the time Elise was fifteen years old, she knew she was different and that society did not embrace her difference. While in high school, Elise existed on the edge of the dating game. After graduating college she makes a decision to change her life. She wants to be the daughter her parents have always wanted. Elise terminates all of her old friendships, dates and becomes engaged to a well-respected young man. For some reason her engagement wedges a gap between Elise and her younger sister. But Elise is too concerned with changing her life to fix things with her sister. Then Elise meets a young woman who makes her question the path she's chosen. As Elise fluctuates between conflicting emotions, her indecisiveness alienates her family and sends her sister on a path of destruction. A tragedy forces Elise to rethink her decisions and accept that she is the master of her fate.S. Stephens has written a mournful yet optimistic story about overcoming the pressures of society. She explores one woman's turmoil and the emotional havoc it caused in her life. The secondary characters were pivotal to the story, in their attitudes about people's views on alternative lifestyles. The writing, characterizations and pace of the story are good. I applaud Ms. S. for this honest, emotional, and penetrating view of family influence and self-worth: she is an author who bears watching. -aNN Brown, Rawsistaz ReviewerGrab your blanket, a cup of steaming hot whatever you drink, and this book, curl up on the sofa, and spend the day wrapped up in Am I My Sister's Keeper?" -Shameal K. Nelson, Nghosi Books.com Reviewer A story of self love, sister love, and the family ties, which threaten our ability to be true to ourselves. S. Stephens has created an insightful and entertaining story that takes us into the life of a woman who must come to terms with her sexuality and face the responsibility that she has a role model t others. A page turner and must read for people from all walks of life. -Shonia Brown, Author of "A Deeper Lover"
