Pieced together from evidence in archives, newspapers and family lore, Bettina Bradbury tells the riveting true story of a woman (Caroline Kearney) forced to travel half way across the world with her six children to a place she'd never been to before because her husband's will forced her to. The move transformed their lives as well as those of their descendants, some of whom now live in New Zealand. Bettina Bradbury says she wrote 'Caroline's Dilemma' because she was fascinated by why Caroline Kearney's husband made such a bizarre will.
