About the Book:

From the cauldron of controversy that is Hawaiian history, emerges Wai-nani, a reflection of the passionate chiefess Ka’ahumanu. Like all Islanders, she is a water baby finding pleasure, sustenance, solace, wisdom and courage in the ground and vibrant sea. She is born fifteen years prior to the landing of Captain Cook in Kealakekua in 1779, and is the favorite wife of Makaha, a fierce warrior modeled after Kamehameha the Great.

Hawaiian women enjoyed sports, were trained in martial arts, played active roles in decision-making and participated in wars. They communed with the gods through hula and ritualistic ceremonies. Wai-nani’s bond with Eku a playful and communicative dolphin – propels her on a mythological journey couched in magical realism.
