Is death immutable, or can the spirit survive?

Hawaii 1941- The Japanese strike with the swift stroke of a Samurai sword and embroil America in a savage war, fought over the island home of the Polynesians and their ancient gods. At Pearl Harbor, a rogue Japanese pilot slays Laura, the beautiful new bride of American Navy pilot, Grant Hylton. In the clash of fast carriers, he exacts a terrible and personal vengeance, culminating in the fiery victory at the Battle of Midway. 
 In this new warfare, pilots live or die by POINT OPTION, the key to finding their way back to the carrier. Two decades after the war, Grant cannot find his way back. Laura is gone, dead and buried, and yet he still feels her gentle touch and hears her whisper.
He doesn’t understand, he’s not certain it’s even real, but he is hopelessly enthralled.

Unknown to Grant, Auntie Manalani, an ancient Hawaiian kaula, a shaman, promised the dying Laura to undo the tragedy, and put everything back the way it was meant to be. She cradles a tiny ethereal blue butterfly in her wrinkled hands. Laura’s spirit isn’t gone, but lies beyond Grant’s reach. Only one chance remains to reunite them and it all depends on someone far away; somebody who wasn’t even born when Laura died.

 Hawaii 1961 - A college student arrives in Honolulu for her summer research project. She’s never been to Hawaii before, but somehow she feels as though she’s returning home.

Point Option carefully interweaves authentic history, enduring romance and Hawaiian tradition to tell the story of three diverse societies facing a terrible war and its aftermath.  Point Option is multicultural historical fiction told in part from the viewpoint of Polynesian spiritual beliefs.
