Marcus Campbell's novel A Blue Forest is a romantic drama set in the Hokianga, a wild and beautiful part of New Zealand. It is the story of Jill, housekeeper to Sister Isobel (an old and eccentric English nun) and of Jill's husband Martin, who is confined to a wheelchair after a road accident. When tragedy again strikes both their lives Sister Isobel invites them to stay at her hermitage, in order to assist their recovery. It is a place of peace, prayer and meditation, where both Jill and Martin sense new directions and meet the people who will move their lives onward. But both come to break Sister Isobel's strict monastic rules, and when Liam, an old friend of Martin's, starts visiting him at night bringing marijuana, whiskey, and incriminating photographs of Jill with a local forester, an explosive situation develops which threatens all their futures, even that of the hermitage itself.
