About this book:

"Relive history in the Hawaiian Islands as three women face fearful challenges in their lives and hearts. Jane rethinks her engagement to a wealthy tycoon back home in Texas. Mary Ellen is trying to find her missing sister who traveled there as a picture bride. Amelia is hiding secrets centered around the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Could finding romance now be more harm than help?

Being in Hawaii each story hits on the Hawaiian gods. It’s part of their history. I had a hard time keeping up who’s who, mostly in the last book (‘Love from Ashes’), though it was my favorite one of the three. Lady on the cover is Amelia Thurstan from the last book. 









*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
