Maile is the daughter of a powerful chief on a Hawaiian island in 1779. They have just had visitors to the island. Captain James Cooke and two of his ships have just left the area and Maile is so happy for the sailors to be gone. Maile sees the white sails again on the horizon and realizes that Captain Cooke and his men are back. This emotional story is about cultures, loss, and love. I found the story to be riveting, passionate and filled with engaging characters. A great addition to historical fiction!
