"Claire's Great Adventure" is a delightful novel, written by an exceptionally intelligent man, Charles Hugh Smith. Every chapter is a cliff-hanger, and I swear I could not put the book down until the intricate pieces of the elaborate puzzle came together in a satisfying conclusion. A lot of research went into describing Paris, Marseille, and Shanghai as well as Chinese martial arts and navy vessels. I learned a lot from this reading.

I won't spoil the plot by revealing its details, but basically, it's about a 16-year-old Hawaiian-Chinese girl, Claire, who is lured by a stranger to search for her long-lost father in Paris, but finds herself and her best friend in a fight for their lives. How they conquer their enemies is part of the excitement. Then, toward the end of the story, she finds the answer to the conundrum: Is her father, who had abandoned her and her mother after just a year of marriage, worth the danger she had to endure to find him?

Read the book to find out. You can order it on
