    Mahalo Nui for taking a closer look at my little Hawaii novel. It’s a story, but a LOT more. My intention was to show REAL life issues, in our REAL Hawaii. Some longtime Kama`aina have told me that “this is the way things used to be.” When a notable Hawaiian told me: “I loved your book. I laughed, I cried, I got chicken skin” I finally felt that I was doing something to preserve what is most special about these islands, her first people, and us settlers blessed to live here. This is my oar in the water. A copy also voyaged on the Japan Voyage of the Hokule`a. “We got plenty of time to read at sea,” Kainoa told me the day they left Sand Island. Aloha Pumehana, cloudia
