The Lost Book of Bonn (2024)
Brianna Labuskes
"Masterfully woven and intricately rendered, The Lost Book of Bonn is a poignant tale of courage and sacrifice in the face of great evil. Brianna Labuskes gives us a fascinating glimpse into the Edelweiss Pirates and those in Germany who were brave enough to take a stand against the Nazis. Both enlightening and heartrending, this book is impossible to put down!"

The Woman with a Purple Heart (2023)
Diane Hanks
"A wonderful tribute to a true American hero. Equal parts touching and heartbreaking, The Woman with a Purple Heart paints a vivid picture of what it was like at ground zero in the attack on Pearl Harbor. Historical fiction lovers, put this on your list!"

Hula (2023)
Jasmin 'Iolani Hakes
"Raw, real and richly layered, Hula is a love letter to Hawai'i, most especially Keaukaha. The words in this novel hit like a hurricane - powerful and intense and imbued with every nuance of island life, from hanabata days to the final paddle out. Brilliantly written and expertly structured, the story of the Naupaka women, and the bitter struggles of the native Hawaiian people, will stay with you long after you've turned the last page. Jasmin 'Iolani Hakes has penned a new classic in Hawaiian literature. I could not put this book down. Maika'i."
