A great read!!! I've always loved reading and learning about Hawai'i so I REALLY love this book! The story is great and I loved how everything developed along the way. There were sometimes that I felt the story and dialogue jumped around a little, and some of the events were a little confusing in the way they were strung together. But with some back tracking I usually was able to catch up again. The Hawai'ian language and the descriptions of the landscape were wonderful additions, and I absolutely loved the characters. I really love this series with the tie ins with the quilts and this specific story plot is such a unique concept overall! This is a beautiful book that looks into letting go of trust issues and fear so that we can come to rely on God fully. The journey of healing that unfolds in these pages makes this a great read, and the messages that remind you how God can reach you in wonderful and unique ways are added beautifully. I learned so much about Hawai'i and it's people! From their names, to their places, to their traditions. The information this book holds makes it worth reading, but then with the fabulous story mixed in it takes it to a whole new level! Dreams are awakened, forgiveness is found, and the true meanings of God's love and 'ohana come to light.
