Another great book from LLC. I have so enjoyed every book she has written that I have read. Her characters come alive and when I am through with one book I can hardly wait for the next one. I would not hesitate to recommend her books to anyone as they are first class in every way.
Wow! I've been looking forward to this book and I wasn't disappointed. Linda Chaikin has done a great job of bringing back the characters from 'For Whom The Stars Shine'. Characters with a strong faith in God plus an intriguing plot plus interesting history plus my favorite fiction author equals a great read. Now I just need the next book in the series!
I very much enjoyed this book. However, the ending leaves much to be desired. Usually books in a series wrap things up and then continue with the next book with some of the same characters and a new plot. By the time the next book comes out I will have forgotten what happened in the first book.
I've been waiting for this story for a long time after "For Whom the Stars Shine". Eden Derrington has become a nurse and is determined to follow her father, Jerome to the island of Molokai where lepers were sent to live a life in seclusion. Eden is also determined to find her mother and finally have a long-lost relationship that she was forbidden to have. Her fiance, Rafe Easton, is adamantly against her going to the island for worry that she, herself, would contract the dreaded disease of leprosy like her mother. Now the boy, Rafe is planning to adopt was found out to be born from Molokai. Eden is faced with the task of having to take little Kip and quarantine him against the wishes of the man she loved. Rafe and Eden had argued heatedly over her decision to accompany her father to Molokai and broke up their engagement. Will their love survive admidst dreams divide? Wonderful story. Linda Chaikin has long been one of my most favourite authors and she has delighted me with this book. I'll be sure to look for the next book in the Dawn of Hawaii series next year. Keep up the good work!
