Publisher's Summary

Meet Pele, Hawaiian goddess of the volcanoes. Meet Katherine O'Dell, recently and reluctantly divorced, stranded on the island of Hawai‘i after her husband has left her. A trained therapist, Katherine has no choice but to hang her shingle in the hopes of making ends meet. What follows is an unlikely encounter, one that can transform Katherine for life or threaten to consume what little she has left.

Pele in Therapy is a short story that carries on Hawai‘i's long tradition of storytelling and myth making. Written with both humor and an eye for detail, best-selling author Darien Gee has created a modern view of the goddess and her impact on those lucky enough to call Hawai‘i home.

Includes a conversation with the author, discussion questions, and a special excerpt from Sweet Life, written by Mia King.

    "Short yet Inspiring"

    Really enjoyed the little clues to Pele's personality. I was looking for a Hawaiian myth book on Audible but it looks like I'll need to find a physical book to read. I need more info on Pele. As a haole child growing up in Hawaii I dreamed at age five that I'd fallen off a cliff after my teddy bear into a pool of lava. I did not burn and there was a beautiful women in the red liquid with long flowing hair reaching out to me. I felt terrified at the fall and of being in lava but then soothed and curious by the look of this women. Then at age seven in Hawaiiana my teachers gave everyone a Hawaiian name on a Friday. But when they came to me they said they needed to deliberate over the weekend for my name. All weekend I wondered what it would be. On Monday they presented the name Pele Kia. After this book I am even more curious because I have always been an outsider without a home. I am creative but have lived a passive docile life, I'm ready to take it over. I long for the sea now living on a burn scar mountain in Colorado. I am a writer who doesn't write, but am taking a writing class. I am inspired and will get the book she suggests at the end, Hawaiian Memoir. Thanks for the little boost! I feel like my life contains multitudes and should be written, at the same time I feel small and silly. But I'll write anyway.
