One year ago, Miranda Robbins carefully extracted herself from a life of terror in which she had no future. Back home in Birmingham, Alabama, surrounded by family and friends, and embarking on both a new relationship and a new career, she should be moving on with her life, safe from the clutches of the man who hurt her. But the vacant lot next door holds more than a few memories, and the terrifying nightmares are a regular reminder of what she hasn't fully left behind: the country she called home and the men she'd loved: one whom she fled in terror, the other whom she still loves, but can't bring herself to contact. More than an ocean lies between them now.
Then one day an unexpected visitor shows up on her doorstep, and her world is thrown into a tailspin. Miranda is compelled to help this stranger, a mysterious woman whose story is every bit as harrowing and sad as Miranda's own. As the two enter into an unlikely friendship, Miranda finds that nothing is what it seems, and nobody can be trusted - not in Birmingham, or in Auckland, New Zealand, the home she left behind. Betrayed, alone, and sinking fast, she's faced with a choice between the life she thought was behind her and the future she is trying to build. She must choose between letting her past claim her for good, or saving herself once and for all. Spanning two countries an ocean apart, Ka Kite is a story of lost loves, confrontation, sacrifice, and most importantly, the ability of unconditional love to heal.
