Publisher Description

In this epic, original novel in which Hawaii's fierce, sweeping past springs to life, Kiana Davenport, author of the acclaimed Shark Dialogues, draws upon the remarkable stories of her people to create a timeless, passionate tale of love and survival, tragedy and triumph, survival and transcendence.

In spellbinding, sensual prose, Song of the Exile follows the fortunes of the Meahuna family—and the odyssey of one resilient man searching for his soul mate after she is torn from his side by the forces of war. From the turbulent years of World War II through Hawaii's complex journey to statehood, this mesmerizing story presents a cast of richly imagined characters who rise up magnificent and forceful, redeemed by the spiritual power and the awesome beauty of their islands.

Song of the Exile

An incredible book. It was not until I read the authors interview at the end that I realized the "comfort girls" of WWII existed. Knowing this made the book more profound and I recognize the courage it took Kiana Davenport to write their story. I found the history of the Hawaiian people deeply moving and have more appreciation for their customs.

So well written

I could feel, smell, hear, touch what Ms Davenport wrote. Growing up Wahiawa Oahu I saw aunties, uncles and our history. Pain, love, glory

Song of Exile

Mesmerizing. Intense. Sad. Void of happiness. Well researched. The destruction from WW II left such pain in its wake and this book will also help you appreciate Jazz in a way you’ve never experienced it. Excellent book.
