On the run from an unfortunate 'indiscretion', young Conrad Rasmussen finds refuge in the North Island of New Zealand under the employ of the famous (or notorious) Dane, Bishop Monrad. However, Conrad - a talented and impetuous Faroeman, known in Jenny Pattrick's Denniston novels as Con the Brake - finds he cannot escape his past.

This is Conrad's story, and that of the unusual woman Anahuia. It is a tale of new lands and old songs, of seafaring and war and the search for love. It is also the story of the Faroe Islands and of Denmark's early connection with New Zealand.

In Catching the Current , the free human spirit is pitted against the forces of tradition. Full of compelling events, vivid communities, and the irresistible character of Conrad Rasmussen, this is a terrific companion novel to the bestselling The Denniston Rose and Heart of Coal .
