At a charming bookstore in the town of Hanapepe on the Hawaiian island of Kauai I asked the owner if he carried books about the islands or written by local authors He offered me this book and said it's like nothing he'd ever read I am so glad to have found this spare story set on the mysterious island of Niiihau in the days following The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor Paul has taken a true event not known to many and brought the residents of the island community to life She also introduces us to Aylmer Robinson the largest landowner on Kauai owner of the entire island of Niihau The Robinson name is legendary on Kauai not necessarily in a favorable way He has demanded the Niihau residents and all his employees follow his beliefs and remain in isolation on the island So what happens when a Japanese Zero pilot crashes on their island and survives The residents await Robinson's visit to no avail as the military has restricted any water traffic between islands Loyalties are tested lives are changed This was a tender rendering of just one of the too many casualties of war and provides great insight into the blended cultures if native Hawaiians

East Wind RainY Hawaiian natives they work the ranch of Niihau's eccentric haole owner who keeps his island totally isolated from the outside world devoid of cars phones and electricity But then a plane crash lands there and although the villagers rescue the pilot they have no idea that he has just attacked Pearl Harbor War. Imagine living a life without modern technology; all the luxuries we enjoy daily are nonexistent No tv radio telephones newspapers air conditioning cars computers etc The people of the island Naihuu live this kind of life Their island is isolated from the rest of the world with the only means of communication as seaboat of through their landlord who doesn't even reside on the island His goal is to keep Naihuu safe from the outside world Due to this disconnect the Naihuuians are clueless of what to do when a Japanese pilot crashes onto their land They have no idea he just bombed Pearl Harbor The only Japanese couple on the island are at a crossroads; do they disclose what this pilot has just done or do they hide this fact until their landlord comes to handle the situation I enjoyed reading this book It was a really good storyline I kept thinking to myself gosh how do they live without technology And then I remember that that is where we all started; all our ancestors lived that way I'm just glad that we've come such a long way that we don't have to continue living that life style I mean how could I possibly live without books LOL I felt that there was a bit too much of what the characters were all thinking and contemplating I found myself skimming through those parts a lot I kind of felt that there were certain parts that weren't necessary and it really dragged on
