The country's graveyards are sprinkled with provocative epitaphs, such as, There is nothing covered that shall not be revealed, Shot on her way to Bible class, Here lies somebody's darling, and Till we meet again. Such epitaphs hint at fascinating stories that have long since been forgotten.
Travelling through New Zealand, Paul Gittins and his fellow historical sleuths have pieced together these stories, giving a glimpse into the lives of ordinary and not so ordinary New Zealanders. The tales he discovers are of romance and of crime; of strangers from other lands aMi of misunderstandings between those already here. They are moving, terrifying, , insightful and, above all, intriguing. They are stories that will not be buried again
