Audible Editor Reviews

"Pungent air", "sweet wind", and the lilting sound of steel guitars waft through this romantic novel of Hawaii. Performer Kate Hood’s pleasant Australian accent and perfect diction carry the listener through this land where nearly all is magic.

Di Morrissey, arguably Australia’s most popular female writer, specializes in women who seek themselves in remote and beautiful places. Catherine Moreland, the heroine of this audiobook who follows an American naval officer to Hawaii during the 1970s, is no different. Fans of memoirs like Eat, Pray, Love may find something to enjoy in this made-up account of soul-seeking and the characters that populate the journey.

Publisher's Summary

It's the psychedelic 70s and social conventions are being challenged. When Catherine Moreland from rural Australia goes on her first trip abroad, a handsome American naval officer sweeps her off her feet and she goes to live in beautiful, romantic Hawaii with her new husband.

At first, the magic and loveliness of the Islands lead Catherine to believe she is living in paradise. She befriends Kiann'e, a traditional dancer; Eleanor, the owner of the legendary Palm Grove Hotal; Lester, a reclusive old surfer; and royal Beatrice, leading the fight to maintain Hawaii's heritage and culture.

However, as Catherine learns more about the Islands, she begins to discover that paradise has a darker side. And when she meets a mystery man of the sea, as though hit by a tsunami her life is turned upside down and changed forever.
