A Secret Kept in Hawaii
A Samantha Novel
Authored by Jo Ann Lordahl
A sequel to Princess Ruth, A Secret Kept in Hawaii continues Samantha’s story. Set amidst the beauty of her Garden Island home of Kauai, Samantha embarks on a spiritual quest to face her personal struggles with fidelity, militarism, and care of the ‘aina (land), while also staying in touch through letters to her warrior husband, Kaimana, now on duty abroad.
While on her quest, Samantha purposefully, and sometimes quite accidentally, evolves into a woman we can admire and, through her journey, she wonderfully illuminates our own.

This time the ride is wilder and unrepressed as Samantha’s profound journey of self-awareness offers a bright and shiny mirror for all of us who have tripped and traveled on our own paths. Jo Ann eloquently puts into words the fog enshrouded ideas, thoughts and truths that many of us have been unable to.
Our precious Kauai is the central stage as Jo Ann masterfully weaves critical present day and past issues into the juicy story line. Intriguing, educational, and eye-opening, the formidable issues also transverse the globe. GMO facts and figures, aggressive global corporations, offensive, outrageous military and government inadequacies, religious idiosyncrasies….This book compels you to take notice and keeps you eagerly engaged.
Way to go JoAnn! And once again…WOW!
