The Current Rate of Exchange

Length: 312 pages4 hours


Rose, a tall, bumbling American woman travels to New Zealand to re-establish ties with her late mother's family and begins the adventure of her life.  If she can survive it.

Armed with old family letters, she retraces her mother's footsteps as a young woman during World War II as a government agricultural worker—or Land Girl—and a war bride when Rose's father landed in New Zealand with the U.S. Marines.

The Current Rate of Exchange is a humorous, heartwarming, and poignant tale of what it means to reconnect, to discover, and to forgive.

Rose unexpectedly becomes involved in the family problems of her cousin Nora; her sudden romance with the handsome, troubled manager of the family farm wasn't on the agenda, either.

If you like the romance of travel, the adventure of unexpected delights—and the delight of unexpected romance—pack up your dreams and follow Rose on her quest for closure.  But will she be able to retrace her own steps home without repeating mistakes of the past?
