The Island Decides: A Novel

The Island Decides

Maui, 1971—A rural Hawaiian paradise soon to become world famous

Carrie Ann Emerson has never heard of Maui, until her lost little girl turns up there, more than 2,000 miles away. The young single mother’s journey to reclaim her child takes her from San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury to a quiet island community shocked by newcomers with a hippie lifestyle of sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll. Suspicious about the circumstances in which little Rorie was lost on the mainland, the Maui judge requires Carrie Ann to remain on the island until he’s convinced she’s a fit mother. At first she wants only to take Rorie home to San Francisco. But she begins to fall in love with Hawai`i. And then there’s Michael—handsome, sexy, charismatic. Certain that she needs a man to get by in the world, Carrie Ann sets her sights on Michael. But is there a line she should not cross to land the man of her dreams? And, with or without a man, can she be the kind of mother her little girl needs?

Available on Amazon in paperback.
