Aloha Rose takes place in modern day Hawaii and is the story of Laney Carigan finding her birth mother's family. Laney was adopted when she was left on her parent's doorstep in a car seat with a Hawaiin flowered quilt. The quilt was embroidered with her name- Alana. As an adult, Laney finds the family of her birth mother in Hawaii. She also meets Kai, a closed off man who was a foster child himself. Both Laney and Kai have to learn to trust God with His plans for their future. And they have to learn to forgive- themselves and others.
I loved Laney and Kai. They were great characters who made me want to get to know them better. The story line was interesting and compelling. I didn't want to put it down. There was a sweet romance story. And there was an inspiring spiritual lesson that was meaningful but not preachy. I loved this one!
I give it 5 stars with a G for content.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
I am a wife and mother. My husband and I have two daughters and make our home in the beautiful state of North Carolina.
I am a teacher. With a Master’s degree in history, I have taught at the university, high school and middle school levels. After years of church involvement as a soloist, choir member and worship leader, I also teach music.
I am a writer. Delighted by the rhythm and musicality of words, I have been writing since childhood. In 2001, I won the Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) Story Writing Contest that re-ignited a lifelong love of writing.
I am on a journey of faith. My ultimate desire through my life and my writing is to proclaim the truth of God’s Word, His redeeming love as seen in the life of Jesus Christ and to help others know for themselves this great, awesome God of all comfort and wisdom. He is enough for every need.
