Queen Lili‘uokalani, the Dominis Family, and Washington Place, their Home Product Description:

Staying away from the usual politics, Queen Lili‘uokalani, the Dominis Family, and Washington Place, their Home, starts with the personal story of Queen Lili‘uokalani, tells of her husband and his family, and finishes with the story of a great house that has always been an important social and political hub. There is much new information about the Queen - such as the biographies of her three hanai children, her own comments about her husband and their marriage, her late life near-romance, her always precarious financial situation, her ability to mix Hawaiian and western cultural and religious beliefs, and her kindness and caring, along with her sometimes unpleasant and candid comments about people.
