About the book: When Laney Carrigan's adoptive parents encourage her as an adult to seek out her birth family, her only clue is the Lokelani quilt in which she was found wrapped as an infant. Centering her search on the Big Island, she battles fears of rejection from a family that abandoned her once before while her faith struggles to embrace God's love.
Along the path to her true heritage, she meets Hawaiian cowboy/helicopter pilot, Kai Barnes. Kai is determined to protect the people he's come to regard as family against a woman he suspects of being nothing more than a gold-digger, but he finds himself drawn to Laney in spite of his reservations. He's spent his entire life seeking forgiveness from past mistakes and longs for a second chance at happiness.
Laney's painstaking journey to find restoration and a place to belong among the breathtaking allure of the Big Island will lead her closer to her past and maybe even something more.

My thoughts: I honestly have to say that I knew next to nothing about Hawaii or their culture other than what I've seen in movies. I love the research that went into the book and how much I learned. The quilt was darling(well in my imagination at least). I loved the story line and fell in love with the characters. There is so much insecurity in not knowing where you came from even if you were showered with love. As adoptive parents we know this. I can't say as an adopted adult(I'm not adopted) what those feelings would be like, but I do think everyone whether adopted or not has moments where they hide behind glasses as our main character Laney does.
