Amalia lost her long-time lover in a car wreck, and was badly injured herself. Between the insurance settlement and cash from the sale of their home, she finds herself comfortably wealthy and in need of a change of scenery. Amalia decides to move to Hawaii.
While in the Aloha state, Amalia meets Paige. Paige is a lover of many women who is also a student looking for a place to earn her PhD and get away from her suffocating family. After meeting the enigmatic Amalia, she decides Hawaii is definitely the place to continue her education.
Coming from two vastly different places in their lives, these two women find strength in each other and begin to believe in love again. Sure, the story is a typical romantic recipe, but it's told in such a delightful way the book is well worth reading.
