Nice history of Hawaiin quilts too

I'll keep saying it. I love these stories. They are not heavy reading (listening?) by any means and that's why I love them. This one made me want to make a quilt in the Hawaiin way. Will I? Doesn't matter. Nice listen.
Kudos to the reader too. I know which character she is now from book to book. Very cool.

Hawai'i

I loved the story itself. The Hawaiian history and culture was represented thoughtfully and it wasn't the maitai-coconut bikini novel you usually run across in fiction set in Hawai'i. 😞 sooo refreshing. Some reviews complain about the 'olelo in there but the narrator did a... decent-ish job. Small stuff like Kalakaua sounding like Kalakawa. Cadence was off. Hawaiian has a flow to it and her flow was... awkward.
My biggest issue was how she pronounce Midori. Japanese is my second language, Hawaiian another... She say it like "Muhdory" it is "Me-dory" but not that hard r... Totally grated on my nerves. *shudder*.
But the pronounciation makes sense when she does Bonnie as she is a guest to the islands. But in voicing Hinano who is kama'āina or Midori who is also local... no excuse.
Story makes it worth it though so don't let it stop you from buying it. It's very well done otherwise story and performance. 👏 Glad to own it.
