Uprooted from his privileged European life and sent to New Zealand to sort himself out, 
21-year-old Daniel pieces together the history of his Maori family. As his relatives revisit 
their past, Daniel learns of a remarkable love story between his Maori grandmother Oriwia 
and his Japanese grandfather Chappy. The more Daniel hears about his deceased 
grandfather, the more intriguing – and elusive – Chappy becomes.

In this touching portrayal of family life, acclaimed writer Patricia Grace explores racial 
intolerance, cross-cultural conflicts and the universal desire to belong. Spanning several 
decades and several continents and set against the backdrop of a changing New Zealand, 

Chappy is a compelling story of enduring love.
