An Unruly Pawn
Maxine is in Hawai’i to pursue plant conservation and medicinal plants. She yearns for a true friend. But paradise is a close community, tense, steep and complicated. The hotel developer has built the golf course too close to an ancient sacred site; the Ghost of the Heiau terrifies the tourists. Maxine exercises her Maine gumption to untangle the relationships that put her own world at risk.
