    The Color of Air PDF/EPUB Á The Color PDF/EPUB or color epub, The Color pdf, The Color of Air PDFEPUBGail Tsukiyama is one of my favorite writers of historical fiction This new novel her first in several years was worth the wait It's set in Hawaii both in the early part of the last century and in the mid 1930's Koji has always loved Mariko but she married Franklin who turned out to be a selfish parasite who left her and their young son Daniel Koji was happy just being part of their lives but nothing has been easy As a cane cutter on the sugar plantations owned by wealthy haoles foreigners usually white he and the other workers were underpaid and overworked There are secrets and tragedies that eventually come to light as the Mauna Loa volcano threatens to envelop the village in molten lava Highly recommended for fans of well researched historical fiction If you liked Alan Brennart's Molokai or enjoy the novels of Lisa See and Amy Tan give this new novel a try I'm grateful that I had the opportunity to review this ARC

    The Color of Air PDF/EPUB Á The Color PDF/EPUB or color epub, The Color pdf, The Color of Air PDFEPUBFull disclosure Gail Tsukiyama is a dear friend This is a lovely book filled with the kind of tenderness for which Gail's books are known In the novel she takes us to Hilo Hawai'i at two periods of time 1918 and 1935 Her historical details are terrific and her sense of place is uite amazing in that she doesn't live there She fills her locations with evocative sensory details that not only pull the reader back in time but also allow the reader to experience the settings every bit as if the reader were there The book pays homage to a period of time during which people lived lives made difficult by poverty isolation and a form of racism that kept individuals tied to backbreaking work in the sugar plantations Choices were limited in every area of life education marriage profession health But the people in the novel en
