Overview

Can their love survive two very different cultures?

Lily Walsh has never imagined anything like America. From supermarkets and swimsuits to the way women look men directly in the eye, she's baffled by this strange new land. Raised in a remote Asian village by her disciplinarian father, 24-year-old Lily is thrilled to visit her brother Jeff in Hawaii--until Jeff is called away on urgent business.

Left in the care of Jeff's best friend, Gabe Kapaia, and his family, Lily discovers the paradise of Oahu's north side at the Kapaia Resort. But she walks a fine line between two worlds. Can she embrace her new experiences without breaking her promise not to shame her missionary father? When Lily finds herself falling for Gabe, her heart is torn. Will her upbringing force her to make the difficult choice between true love and family honor?

In one sense, Lily Walsh had waited her entire life for this Hawaiian visit to her brother. But when the circumstances change suddenly, Lily realizes that much more than her vacation is being threatened. A sensitive novel about the testing of spiritual values.

This is a sweet but slow romance. The book is also long so its nice to be able to read longer.

This book was amazing! I couldn't put it down, I usually read books based in the 1800's, Civil War, Southern Plantations kind of things but I was in a hurry in the library and scanned the back and grabbed it and went and boy was I glad! It was charming and at some points it had me on the edge wondering what was going to happen. I think it was so wonderful that Lily had such a wonderful relationship with God! When I read this book I think it helped with my own relationship with the Lord.

I like everything that Lori Wick writes and this book is no different. I love the way she transports me to where ever it is her stories take place. What truly impressed me with this book was all of the research she had to have done on Kashien and their culture. It was so interesting. Of course, the romance was the main reason I bought the book and she didn't let me down. I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a good romance with a little bit a humor.

I started reading it over spring break on my way home from vacation. My mom had to make me put it down and go to bed. I could barely go to sleep for thinking about what was going on in the book. The next day I didn't put the book down until I was finished that night. It turns out I hadn't eaten, used the bathroom, or talked to anyone for a full 48 hours because I was so into this book. I got so sick from not eating that nothing tasted right and I got full after literally one bite. My mom and the doctor had to make me eat! I missed 2 days of school and I was so behind. I couldn't stop thinking about the book for weeks. The only thing I regret was reading the back of the book before the book. I knew the big event before I even started the book! If it wasn't such a good book that would've ruent the book for me!

I have never read such a wonderful book. This is the best ever. I was so impressed by the way she drew everything together and made all the twists and turns

I think that this book was the best book I have EVER read! It made me realize that I want to marry someone like Gabe, someone who'll wait for me until we're married.
