I was also attracted to this novel because it's set in Hawaii and we spent a winter there about twenty years ago. Just reading those Hawaiian names made me smile.
Matt King is a direct descendent of Hawaiian royalty and he has to make the painful decision of who to sell his inherited land to.
He also has another heart-breaking decision to make. His wife was in a boating accident and is lying in a coma. He has to decide when to pull the plug. In the mean time, he has to learn how to be a dad. His wife had always done most of the parenting and, now, he must be a role model for his two daughters: Alex, learning how to live without drugs, and Scottie, his impressionable ten-year-old.
Great characters. Great location. Great plot. I guess you can tell I loved this book!
