Overview

"We all live on islands," a old man counsels in "An Island in the Turquoise Sea," the opening story in this collection of short stories by Carl Heintze. - - But all islands are not the same. "An Island in the Turquoise Sea" tells of a special island, Kauai, the northern most inhabited of the Hawaiian islands, the first to emerge from the ocean eons ago. Its subject is its natives and its visitors. Once dependent on sugar cane, but now a tourists' dream Kauai has drawn Heintze to it each year for thirty years. "An Island in the Turquoise Sea" is his tribute to the island. In it Carl describes those who have lived there all their lives and those come for the first time. His stories tell how the island, though seemingly eternal, brings change, of how its trade winds, showers, clouds and surf offer new vistas, new life and new beginnings. Two of these stories are prize winners, but all are bewitching. Like Kauai itself, truly an island in the turquoise sea, they are unique.
