Publisher's Summary

Inspired by real places and events of WWII, Red Sky over Hawaii immerses the listener in a time of American history full of suspicion and peril in this lush and poignant tale about the indisputable power of doing the right thing against all odds.

The attack on Pearl Harbor changes everything for Lana Hitchcock. Arriving home on the Big Island too late to reconcile with her estranged father, she is left alone to untangle the clues of his legacy, which lead to a secret property tucked away in the remote rain forest of Kilauea volcano. When the government starts taking away her neighbors as suspected sympathizers, Lana shelters two young German girls, a Japanese fisherman, and his son. As tensions escalate, they are forced into hiding - only to discover the hideaway house is not what they expected.

When a detainment camp is established nearby, Lana struggles to keep the secrets of those in her care. Trust could have dangerous consequences. As their lives weave together, Lana begins to understand the true meaning of family and how the bonds of love carry us through the worst times.

Mesmerizing and Colorful

I am so glad I was able to experience this beautiful story and the Narrator did such an excellent job her intonation and pronunciation was excellent. I was raised on this island and being born in Hawaii I know of these beautiful places and the sense of being that is here, at home! Mahalo Nui Loa for sharing this with us Sara and Jennifer!!!

Wonderful story

I loved the story and all the characters. It kept me glued to the end . Even so, I didn’t want it to end. Mystery, spirit, forbearance, love and goodness in a very hard time. I read this during the Covid Pandemic and angst of the presidential election 2020. The story gave pause and calm as a gift.

Great story!

I was directed to this author by a librarian friend of our family. I lived on the Big Island for 3 years and did not know any of the war history. I love how the narrator pronounced the Hawaiian words properly. I love how the author depicts the Hawaiian/local traditions.

Delightful

This book took me back to Hawaii and the feel and smell of the area around the volcano. She brings a new look to the time around the bombing of Pearl Harbor. It was delightful to read.
