Reviews

"A work of towering historical majesty, The Last Aloha propels us into a story as exotic and seductive as any of the Hawaiian Islands"€"before the tourists arrived. This is a journey far off the beaten track, an elegy to a world lost by being found." -- Sarah Bird, author of "The Yokota Officers Club" and "Virgin of the Rodeo" "Sarah Bird"
"Inspired by true events, The Last Aloha explores the deep recesses of Hawaii's history. It details the final days of the monarchy and the queen's struggle to save her throne. Quinn's extensive research through original 19th- and 20th-century documents, conversations with native Hawaiians, and visits to the original sites make her book thorough." -- Kira Taniguchi "Austin Woman Magazine"
"I was caught up in the drama and spectacle from the first. Quinn knows her history and is skilled at bringing it to the page. I highly recommend this novel, not just to those with an interest in the Hawaiian Islands, but to all who can appreciate a good yarn. Knowing that much of this one is true made it all the more compelling." -- Eileen Goudge, author of "Garden of Lies" and "Such Devoted Sisters" "Eileen Goudge"
"A riveting story of the glory of the Hawaiian kingdom, The Last Aloha is a top pick that should not be overlooked." -- Editor "The Midwest Book Review"
