Title: HAWAIIAN CROSSWINDS
Author: Linda Lee Chaikin
Publisher: Moody Press
Rafe Easton is still in love with Eden, but she is off working with her father on a project that is of importance to her. Rafe has been approved to adopt a young boy, but he is leaving him with his mother until his business is taken care of, and he is married to Eden.
But something is going on in the political scene. Eden’s father wants to quietly gift one of his daughter’s former suitors with a parcel of land—but why? As political tensions mount, some of the island’s most prominent families are faced with revelations that could cost everything—the country’s future and Rafe’s future.
HAWAIIAN CROSSWINDS is the second book in The Dawn of Hawaii series by Ms. Chaiken. Readers will want to read The Spoils of Eden first as it will bring you up to speed on what is happening in HAWAIIAN CROSSWINDS.
Set in 1892 and before Hawaii became a state. It is still ruled by the royal family, and so some real life people do make an appearance in the story. The historical Hawaiian history included in this novel makes it a must-read. $13.99. 350 pages.
