YearsMoreAn exciting new voice richly and suspensefully evokes modern and ancient Hawaii...When Storm Kayama walks into her lucrative Honolulu law firm one morning, shes shocked--and grieved--to find her adopted uncle at his desk, stiff and cold. Years before, Miles Hamasaki had fulfilled a promise to Storms father and brought her to be raised with his own family. But, as questions surround Miles death and her adopted family begins to close ranks, Storm suspects that he has been murdered.Heading to the Big Island for a weekend escape from escalating pressures, she narrowly escapes a terrible accident. Storm takes refuge in the home of her Aunt Maile, a traditional Hawaiian healer, and Uncle Keone, a paniolo on the huge Parker Ranch. There she encounters a legend from her youth and a family totem, or aumakua, which Aunt Maile promises will protect her. As Storm struggles to heal her own childhood wounds and bring justice to Hamasakis killer, she also comes to grip with the rifts in her own life and culture.From the winding cane roads of Hamakua to the seedy side of Honolulus Chinatown, with a deft juxtaposition of a bustling Honolulu against the islands legends and wild beauty, Atkinson reveals a Hawaii that few visitors ever see.
