Welcome to the official webstore for Finding Thomas by Trish Rossiter, and congratulations - you've found him!

In 1840, a young British seaman is washed up on the west coast of Aotearoa New Zealand. It is a pivotal time in the development of the country, and the ink on the Treaty of Waitangi is barely dry.
The New Zealand Company ships are exploring the country hoping to buy up any available land. As immigrants begin to arrive, tangata whenua and settlers alike find themselves confronted by increasingly complex decisions concerning the future of the nation.

Thomas Skinner’s story is portrayed against the backdrop of these tumultuous times, and shows something of its impact on him and his family as Wesleyan missionaries working and living with tangata whenua. Woven through the narrative are glimpses into the author’s personal pilgrimage to find her ancestor, and the heartwarming, albeit at times challenging, interface with te ao Māori.

Finally after years of extensive research and rewarding travels, this 178 pg softback title is available to purchase through this website simply by clicking on the image of the book below.

"Each chapter has been a joy to read. Trish has a natural, easy style that engages the reader. She is an adept storyteller and a critical thinker..."
Rev Dr Terry Wall (MA, BSc, STM, D Min Stud).
