"Look for Me in Hawaii: A Third Memoir"
By Glenda Chung Hinchey

This book is a collection of stories from the author's past, her third such effort. The stories focus on relationships with friends and family. Born in Hawaii, she lived away for a number of years and has returned to make the islands her home. The stories run the gamut from details of her daily routine to taking a trip to Croatia to visit a long-lost flame.
