Fiction. A young woman tries to rebuild her life after moving away from Waikiki and the excesses of a self-destructive lifestyle with her drug-dealing boyfriend. She moves temporarily to her father's Molokai beach home, a ramshackle old house complete with an overgrown orchid hothouse and an ancient koa canoe. There she uncovers the remnants of a tragic love storywhich inspires a ragtag team of paddlers to take on the channel race and in so doing rebuild their lives. "I may never race a koa canoe from Molokai to Oahu, but if there's any writer in the world that can make me feel the blisters as though I alreadyhave, that writer is Ian MacMillan. This is also a novel of the deepest concern for the human condition, of the importance of love and dignity, a novel that strikes at the heart of why we keep at being alive"--Robert Barclay.
