This is a good effort from a first-time novelist; it is filled with conflict between individuals, beliefs, and culture. Set in the chaotic '60s, the author promises to follow-up this work with another in a series of family history of Samoans. The culture clash between faa-Samoa and mainstream culture is bittersweet, indicating an embrace of religiously liberating ideas, with the honor and nobility of traditional Samoan culture.
