Award-winning author Janice Marriott and her South Island high country farmer friend Virginia Pawsey‘s warm and witty letters to each other about their completely different lives led to three books and a column in NZ House and Garden.

Changing Lives is their story of the huge upheaval they each faced when Janice left her flower and vegetable filled garden of 15 years in Wellington and moved to Auckland, and Virginia left the Canterbury farm that had been in her family since 1897, and her own garden there. Local award winning writer Anna Mackenzie, who lives on a farm in Raukawa, will lead them in discussion of how the radical changes in their lifestyles affected them both personally and philosophically. Their perceptive exchanges on common life events will resonate with both city dwellers and country lovers alike as they talk about motherhood, family, love and loss, work-life balance, the meaning of life, and food and gardens.
