Waiting for minimum critic reviews


In the 1960s, children born during the international carnage of World War Two were becoming adults: falling in love; starting lives of purpose and promise; discovering family secrets; serving their countries - often involuntarily - and creating a variety of families. While in romantic Honolulu to sign papers selling the family's last hotel to a group of employees, jaunty Luke Whitaker meets dazzling Martha Prindle, a registered nurse, who has been working in New Zealand and is currently sailing from Auckland to San Francisco with only her dad for a crew. Tragedy strikes before Luke and Martha meet again, souring their reunion with exhaustion, tainting their relationship with deadly threats, issues of national security, and too much truth. Survive together, the FBI insists, or not at all. Can desperation and danger be overcome by a combination of love, romance, good taste, money, loyal friends, a bit of wit, and the blessings of Almighty God?
