|About the Book|
1929. Maui writer Armine von Tempski, who died almost a half-century ago, is one of Hawaiis enduring literary legends. She spent her childhood years on the family ranch in Haleakala with her Polish-American father and English mother. Her books reveal the daily life and customs on Hawaii with a colorful prose that captures the beauty of the spectacular tropics. Fire is a story of love transcendent and terrible, of the forsaking of old gods and the finding of new. It is a story of conflict between two men who love the same woman-a battle fought on bare mountain tops, in brilliant drawing-rooms and at an unforgettable climax on the polo field. An infinitely difficult and dramatic situation, lived through to a defeat that is victory and a victory that is defeat, makes a story that challenges every readers love of thoroughbred courage.
