ABOUT THE BOOK:
Amelia’s secret is catching up with her.
For almost five years, Amelia Thurstan has lived a lie, believing her parents faced enough grief with the loss of their son during World War II and the death of her love, Joe, during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. But that was before Joe’s brother showed up in Hawaii, filled with questions she never wanted to answer.
Luke Thurstan is a former marine battling to bring peace to himself and his parents after World War II. When he lands in Hawaii, the revelation that his brother married a woman who is half Japanese is disturbing enough. But events quickly force Luke to confront the bitterness that has sprung up within him as a result of the war’s devastation.
When Amelia’s secret is finally uncovered, will it be one more blow to two families overwhelmed by grief? Or will love rise from the ashes on wings of healing?
