No Place Like Home (Paperback)
Hilo author and feature author at Kona Stories— From Susan Wackerbarth's New Book is Available
The East Hawai'i Community Players need a smash hit to save Hilo's historic Palace Theater from the ravages of time, tropical weather, the ailing economy, a menacing network of drug dealers-and themselves from all manner of folly and heartbreak. The Wizard of Oz will be a sure thing. Or will it? Susan Wackerbarth tells this wry, playful story through an unlikely constellation of haole misfits, both "grown" and "flown," trying to find their way on the Big Island. Quirky, bittersweet, and suspenseful, this novel explores each person's longing for a home of the heart, and climaxes in an opening night no one will forget.
