R. R. Harris is a witty wordsmith who weaves an evocative page-turner of mystery, adventure, and romance in ON THE EDGE: OF LAVA, LOVE AND TERROR.
Having lived through the lava scare on the Big Island, I can say this book totally captures the climate of that time. For those who don’t live in Hawaii, experience the suspense of living on the edge of an exploding volcano, multiplied by international terror and unrequited love.
But, there’s also inspiration to be gained, as an elderly Hawaiian County Councilwoman explains:
“Pele does not destroy, she creates, and what she creates is even greater than before, so maybe we needed a wake-up call to change our way of thinking. Maybe we needed to quit throwing around the word Aloha and then in the next breath curse our neighbor, or those who are different than us. Maybe we need to start living with Aloha, putting it into action and putting smiles on our faces. Maybe, Pele saw all of this need and was just helping us get started.”
ON THE EDGE is available FREE on Amazon Kindle through Sunday, August 5, and is also available in paperback.
