Alan Brennert's books have been recommended to me for years. I finally broke down and read them. Brennert has mastered his craft as a storyteller. Readers will have an opportunity to step back into old Hawai'i, be immersed in the beauty and pain of the state's history, and realize that we'll never really know what it means to experience a hardship. At least not the way they did.
These titles will appeal to a wide audience.

Honolulu is the rich, unforgettable story of a young “picture bride” who journeys to Hawai'i in 1914 in search of a better life.
