    One thought on “Princess Kaiulani of Hawaii: The Monarchy's Last Hope”

    1. A wee bit stiff at first, but gets more interesting as it progresses. Doesn't really give any new information on the Princess, but the author does a fair amount of covering the political climate of the period.

    3. I found this book to be well done the further I read into it. As a hapa Hawaiian born and raised in Hawaii nei by Sovereign parents I have at times great difficulty reading the accounts of this tragic time for our nation and our monarch.

    4. This is a great book that offers so many answers to questions that about a piece of history not mentioned. A great read.
