One horrible night fifteen years ago, a little girl named Maddie was taken away from the island paradise she treasured, the townspeople she loved, and the playmate who shared her soul.
Now, she’s coming back to them.
Maddie was only a child in those idyllic, carefree days when she and her best friend Kai swam in the ocean, fished, hiked, and stargazed on the tropical island of Lana'i. At twenty-five, she realizes that her memories of those elementary-school days may have been romanticized, given that the months following her mother’s sudden death and her own unwilling departure from Lana'i were the worst of her life. But she has never given up her dream of returning to the people she cared about. Not when warm images of the boy Kai’s face continue to haunt her mind.
Having contrived to do post-doctoral research studying feral cats on the neighboring island of Maui, bold-from-birth Madalyn Westover isn’t afraid to show up out of nowhere and say hello. Nor is she afraid to track down Kai, despite several nebulous warnings about how much he has changed. But when she realizes that every man, woman and child in Lana'i City seems to have mysterious knowledge about her own family which she does not, Maddie doesn’t feel so brave anymore. And when reality crashes into fantasy full force, she must decide in whom and what she can trust to find her own true home.
