Under the Maui Sky5 star

It’s is truly an inspirational read that encompasses a family and friends into a very realistic story. The characters are very well developed and I can truly see where the author can use these characters in upcoming stories. This book made me feel good about how people can overcome trials in their lives and learn from them. Yes, there will be times of grief, sadness, fear and frustration but there is hope.55
