Is death immutable, or can the spirit survive?
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.
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.
