Excerpt from Between Thoughts of You, my 3rd novel set in Oahu & Tuscany
Hi’iaka i ka Poli o Pele protect this kiki
Aumakua of the night,
Watch over your offspring, enfold Lani in the belt of light.
Lulu had been told as a child that Kamakau taught Hawaiians the dead went either to a place of darkness called Milu or a place of light called Wakea. The Aumakua were the intermediaries between the living and the dead. Lulu had always suspected that her wise Nan was one of these.
