Peart, Jane. The Promise. This is a novel.

From the publisher: In The Promise, Peart takes the next generation to the island paradise of Hawaii, where Wesley and JoBeth’s daughter, Jana, is born. Growing up on the island with Hawaiian friends, Akela and Kimo, Jana loves Hawaii and hopes to never leave. Her carefree life is marred by the blight of prejudice, however. Jana struggles through years of painful separation from Kimo, and through the temptation to join the seductive world of her rich friend, Edith and her handsome brother, Bayard. Jana creates a traditional Hawaiian quilt, one that holds a secret, hidden in the heart of its creator. No pattern the same, no secret revealed before its time. Click Here to Order
