An End to Innocence, 2nd. Edition.: A Romance Novel Set in Hawai by Dr Rosemary I. Patterson
Some people live quiet, restful lives. Not so, strikingly beautiful, part Hawaiian, part Japanese, Kelia Nimura, who encounters vibrant experiences of her love nature when she leaves quiet Hilo town and ventures on a path of self-development in Honolulu. Tumultuous love affairs, social activism, and rising cultural awareness carve Kelia into a stronger, more authentic person during the State of Hawaii's growing years.
