A Better View of Paradise

(2009)
A novel by

 
 
A deeply satisfying novel that explores the tender bond between fathers and daughters, and celebrates the redemptive power of forgiveness and love - sometimes found in the most unexpected places

Thirty-six-year-old Stevie Pollack has earned fame and praise for her landscape architecture projects, though critics complain she's too formal, too rigid. But when her boyfriend abruptly drops her, and her Chicago lakefront development project is panned, Stevie flees to Hawaii, where she spent her childhood with her emotionally distant father.

Hank Pollack has returned to the islands for a very different reason; he's dying. As father and daughter mend fences, Stevie discovers new emotional depths within her father as well as a startling, hidden past.

Shocking revelations force Stevie to undergo a personal transformation both uncertain and exciting. With Hank's help - and the very agreeable attentions of a handsome local veterinarian - Stevie learns to surrender her inhibitions and seize every beautiful day in a reconfigured paradise.
