Inspired by real places and events of WWII, RED SKY OVER HAWAII immerses the reader in a time of American history full of suspicion and peril in this lush and poignant novel.
~WEEKEND READING|ALWAYS WITH A BOOK~
USA Today Bestselling and Hawaiin powerhouse author Sara Ackerman returns with a fabulous new work of historical fiction set in the Hawaiian Islands during WWII. I’ve loved her previous two books, which combine a little romance with lush landscapes and historical inspiration–plus a menagerie of animals, too. RED SKY OVER HAWAII (Mira June 9th) is no exception and Ackerman is quickly becoming a go-to for historical fiction.
Life is forever changed after the attack on Pearl Harbor as one woman becomes the unlikely guardian of a mismatched group.
THE FLIGHT GIRLS
When a detainment camp is established nearby, Lana struggles to keep the secrets of those in her care. Trust, it seems, could have dangerous consequences. As their lives weave together, Lana begins to understand the true meaning of family and how the bonds of love carry us through even the worst times.
The Hawaiian setting and home front experience give RED SKY OVER HAWAII a fresh take on WWII fiction, and Ackerman’s lush and evocative writing perfectly captures the sense of place and time.
