Description

Blotting our Wisdom is a family saga, based on truth and spanning five decades. It tells the story of Barbara Weston, growing up within a close and loving family in the Manawatu. Like so many of her generation, Barbara' s life is profoundly changed by th advent of war, during which an American marine, on recuperative leave in New Zealand with his diversion, becomes a part of the Weston family for a time, briefly touching Barbara's young and impressionable heart. As each of the five Weston children seek their own way in life, Barbara struggles to understand who she really is, her quest for love eluding her. In her maturity, she experiences passion for the first time and realises the one she truly loves has run like a thread throughout her life.
