`Passion' is the perfect word for author Marion Day. She is passionate about many things - life, nature, photography, good food - and unifying them all is her love of writing. A veritable `feast' in s... even stunning parts, not only does this book showcase Marion's life with her partner Steve Podjursky in Clova Bay, a remote area of outstanding natural beauty in the Marlborough Sounds of New Zealand, but it is also a story of local history and everyday life in a small, isolated community. A Kiwi treasure and a breathtaking pictorial journal, Passion revolves around three themes: Living - A superb insight into life away from the hustle and bustle of cities, noise, and traffic; Feasting - Allows the reader to enjoy Marion's favourite dishes using local natural foods caught or grown on her doorstep, and to learn how to use some unusual ingredients; Writing - Delight in Marion's narrative, interspersed with her wonderful anecdotes, short stories and poems, draws the reader into her remarkable life. Marion's inspiration often comes from the natural elements surrounding her, and it is that which led to this book being written. It is presented in seven parts: From the Past, From the Land, the Sea, the Sky, the Mountains, the Garden and finally, the Heart - a union of `living, feasting and writing'. Marion is a talented amateur photographer, and the majority of the photos are her own. The book presents beautiful land and seascapes, with their moods, along with images that portray her way of living, with family and community. Intermingled with the main narrative and photography are wonderful anecdotes, short stories and poems, and titbits captured in diary entries, along with a selection of scrumptious recipes - Marion's favourites - using local natural ingredients caught, or grown, on her doorstep. Throughout, the back-to-nature concept involves a simpler, more relaxed life lacking normal everyday communication with the outside world. The book aims to share her story with all New Zealanders and visitors so they too can enjoy life in a small, isolated community. We hope it may become part of the area's history and also showcase the broader culture of our country.
