The Tree of Strangers explores the consequences of New Zealand’s forced adoption laws.

Author Barbara Sumner is an outspoken critic of New Zealand’s adoption laws. Her memoir The Tree of Strangers explores the personal and social consequences of severing all connection with history, culture, family and authentic identity. She argues that her experience is shared by many who have had their whakapapa grafted onto a tree of strangers for their lifetimes, and those of their descendants.

Tree of Strangers is much more than activist writing. It is a remarkable, haunting, and beautifully crafted book; eloquent, moving and tender. It is memoir at its finest.
