Daughters of Fire Product Description:

A multicultural adventure set amid the beauty, volcanic power, and cultural tensions of Hawai`i…


A visiting astronomer falls in love with a Hawaiian anthropologist who guides him into a Polynesian world of volcanoes, gods, and revered ancestors. The lovers get caught up in murder and intrigue as developers and politicians try to conceal that a long-dormant volcano is rumbling back to life above the hotel-laden Kona coast. The anthropologist joins with an aging seer and a young activist, and these three Hawaiian women summon their deepest traditions to confront the latest, most extravagant resort as the eruption and the murder expose deep rifts in paradise.


Daughters of Fire picks up where James Michener’s Hawai`i left off. More than a decade in the research and writing, Daughters of Fire mills Hawai`i’s tensions and cultural revival into a gripping novel that illuminates the irrepressible spirit of a native people struggling to keep faith with aloha.
