What do you do if you are Unsound? Take to land or sea.

Either way, healing can be found in nature.

My protagonist, Dr. Caprice Wilson, took a hike in Haleakala Crater to clear her mind and body–and it didn't go the way she planned. My literary suspense novel, Unsound, is on sale for .99 through next Wednesday 11/20/13. Grab one here: UNSOUND

Another woman, Wai-nani, High Chiefess of Hawaii, took to the ocean. I totally enjoyed Linda Ballou's book inspired by Queen Ka`ahumanu. Wai-nani is a badass–she swims from one island to the next with the aid of dolphin friends, and falls in love with a powerful war chief. In a time when women were subservient in Hawaiian culture, Wai-nani boldy defies father, husband, brothers and kings to follow her heart.

Told in a rhythmic style that echoes the chant of hula, Wai-nani's tale is inspiring and educational–it shows a well-populated Hawaii with a vital, vibrant culture before white man arrived. After a little trouble “getting into” the book due to it's different voice, I enjoyed immersing in the Wai-nani's sea–the same sea I'm fortunate to be surrounded by now. If you buy Linda's book off her website link she includes a cool map of the Big Island called Wai-nani's Wayfinder with locations from the book shown.

What do you do if you are Unsound? Do you find healing on land, or in the water?
