    1. Up until the last page I was planning on giving this book 3 stars and saying that it was equally as stupid as it was sweet. But the last page was soooo stupid that I have to just warn you. Consider yourself warned.

    2. Awful story they never develop aue relationship and you never fall in love with any of the characters! it was just so lame, only saving grace was that it was only 200 some pages.

    3. At twenty years of age, Rebekah Martin lost her beloved fiance David McLaughlin to a tragic fire. Even though she knew she did not, and would never, love him, she agreed to return and marry David's twin brother Ian once her heart had healed. And with that promise, Bekah leaves her sheltered life in the territory of Hawaii and goes to live with her aunt in San Francisco. Haunted by memories of the night David died and believing she could have done something more to save him, Bekah struggles to le [...]

    4. I really liked how the plot was set up: young woman who experiences a very painful end to an engagement, runs away to the mainland to go through nurse's training, returns to Hawaii just before Pearl Harbor.However, the book ended just when the plot really seemed to begin. The blurb on the back of the book took me right up to the last five pages of the book. I felt a little bit cheated out of the promised story.I also found some of the romantic aspects contrived. The first male character we meet [...]

    5. read it a long time ago and then let my baby use it as a chew toy after that because it was so bad. would have used it as toilet paper had I run out. awful writing. awful story. I feel more stupid for having read it; it killed brain cells for sure.

    6. I enjoy the idea of the story, but every time I read this book, I realize how choppy it is. Mrs. Holder doesn't allow the story to flow. Instead she simply throws in new ideas.I like it until I read it again.

    7. Back in high school, I loved - LOVED this book! but reading it again, NOW, made me realize that this was really silly. I do, however, still cherish my enjoyment and love-crazed feelings when reading this back in the day so I'm giving it 3 stars.

    8. I love this story! A sad story about the Hawaiian girl whose past haunts her heart and she meet a handsome sailor. When Japanese planes comes over the island and their love were put a untimate test.

    9. It was doing so well until the ending that wasn't an endingRIOUSLY THAT WAS THE ENDING??????No. I demand an extra chapter because that wasn't an ending.
