Twin sisters Hana and Kei grew up in a tiny Hawaiian town
in the 1950s and 1960s, so close they shared the same
nickname. Raised in dreamlike isolation by their loving
but unstable mother, they were fatherless, mixed-race, and
utterly inseparable, devoted to one another. But when

urgent, unforgettable backdrop of this intimate,
evocative, and deeply moving story of motherhood,
sisterhood, and second chances.
