I was just interested in hearing a little more about the history surrounding the period in which this novel takes place. I only remember learning about the annexation, and was always under the impression that it took place with the full support of the Hawaiian people. A few days ago, I mentioned something about this to a friend who has lived in Hawaii for the past 15 years and he knew nothing about this. Sounds very interesting...

kyno ravelo says, Gallen Quinn's book "The Last Aloha" opens the door for many people who would otherwise never know the truth about the overthrowal of the Hawaiian Kingdom. I moved to Hawaii in 1970 ,at that time many people new nothing of this take over by American Bankers supported by American Troops. The Hawaiian people are still suffering from this injustice.

Isn't it incredible that for more than 100 years the truth of the stolen Kingdom has been suppressed? It is my hope that all Americans will come to know the truth, perhaps this "historical fiction" by Gaellen can direct many to see that the struggle for Hawaiian rights (and thereby all native rights) goes on to this day.(

G. Quinn says:
Glad to see your interest! You know, 2009 is the 50th anniversary of Hawaii's Statehood.
Wouldn't that be a perfect time for people to learn how Hawaii became part of America? Interested people can read an excerpt of my historical novel, The Last Aloha. It's a semi-finalist in the Breakthrough Novel Contest. Stories my Hawaiian sister-in-law told me that I never heard in all my travels to Hawaii provided the impetus to write a novel set in the period of the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy in the late 19th century. Here's the link:
If this is something that interests any readers of this site, I'd appreciate them reading the excerpt and writing a brief review.

Pride, arrogance, self-respect, and a refusal to made to feel foolish or ashamed have always been the catalysts of men and nations to impose their will and ideals upon others. Good luck, Gaellen, in spreading the word.
