Set in the exotic and fascinating era surrounding the reign of Hawaii's last queen, best-selling author Linda Chaikin's newest novel, For Whom the Stars Shine, recounts the untold story of Christianity's true impact on Hawaii's history. With her typical imagination and skilled recreation of historical detail, Chaikin introduces us to a paradise in trouble and one woman's struggle to live her faith.

Eden Derrington has always lived on the periphery of her influential family circle. Having lost her mother at a tender age, Eden's caring aunt and uncle raised her, allowing her father, Jerome, to continue his ministry to those afflicted with deadly leprosy.

Now on the verge of adulthood, Eden is thrilled to travel to San Francisco for nurse's training so she can follow in the steps of her parents. Yet her love for the Hawaiian people and concern for their tenuous future drives Eden home, where she to bring some measure of peace and perhaps uncover the truth beneath the mysterious silence cloaking her mother's death.

At the Derrington Plantation, Eden is torn between the wishes of her grandfather and the two warring stepbrothers who hold the keys to the long-hidden secret. As the political situation worsens and the Hawaiian monarchy struggles to retain power, Eden's heart battles within her as she yearns for the embrace of truth and love.
