Webb. Jean Frances
New York : David McKay, 1973.
Ellen Sedgwick is bound for Hawaii in a quest to rescue her fiance's good name. She befriends folks from both sides of the political situation that is arising. On the one hand, the loyalists who want Hawaii preserved for the Hawaiians and want the Kingdom to remain, and the other, the clan of plantation owners who export profits along with pineapples. She believes that her fiance was on to corruption or spying and was killed by one of the sides, but which one? Or did he really commit suicide? This mystery is interesting because it's set on an island we think of as idyllic and peaceful with folks of one mind. This novel explores just how diverse the special interest groups are on Hawaii and what was going on before Hawaii was taken as a territory.
