1917

In the Dangerous Archipelago north of Tahiti, Henry Ka'imiloa Keenan is forced to beach his old schooner for repairs. The turmoil of World War seems far away until Keenan meets Matildhe Kolbe, a fugitive from German New Guinea. She fears Keenan might give her up to the authorities, but Keenan also needs to avoid the French while poaching colonial trade. A vortex of jealousy and suspicion, Song of the Mokihana is also a lyrical tale of lovers from multi-racial backgrounds, and the conflicting allegiances neither is prepared to abandon. Against a panorama of grand trade wind seascapes, Keenan and Matildhe find occult and mystical influences are not completely displaced by the strategic imperatives of the new century. Includes contemporary illustrations and appendix.
