Wanda Brunstetter and Jean Brunstetter definitely did their homework with capturing the loveliness of the Islands and all the sites the characters experienced throughout their trip. There were some unexpected events that kept me reading until I finished this lovely story. The characters and secondary characters are well developed with their own thoughts and goals in their lives. How will the beauty of a Hawaiian Quilt be woven into this great read? Readers and admirers of Wanda and Jean Brunstetter's books will not be disappointed with this one. I would like to see a sequel to see what is happening with the characters, with the unforeseen ending.
