"Brimming with sensuality and intelligence, Kathy Giuffre's quest for freedom in the Pacific has a disarming honesty and a delightful turn of phrase. Woven into her intimate story is a love letter to the people of Rarotonga, rich with all the joys and sorrows of a lost paradise." -- Kapka Kassabova, author, Street Without a Name
