The waves lap dangerously close to the abandoned baby–abandoned by the Molokai leper colony of the late 1800s.
That baby will be at the center of an alternately tense and bittersweet romantic struggle between Eden Derrington and Rafe Easton. Eden and Rafe are in love, but Baby Kip may very well endanger their future together.
It’s two generations after the on-fire missionaries have arrived on the Hawaiian Islands, and the descendants of those missionaries are drifting into complacency and materialism. The generational plots and subplots masterfully woven throughout this first in the “Dawn of Hawaii” trilogy will leave the reader yearning for the second and third books, coming in 2011 and 2012.
