    1. Remember where you are, Caroline This is M a u i There are mysteries here that men have never touched good and evil I don t want to deny any of the old powers MarlaPhyllis A Whitney was a wonderful writer who wrote mysteries for young people, and tales of gothic romance and mystery for adults In some ways, Silversword is atypical of her work because the gothic element and setting is missing, but in another way it is one of her finest, highlighting her deft talent for storytelling, and her uncann [...]

    2. A young girl taken away from her family home returns as a young lady to learn how her father died and family secrets that have almost destroyed her family are revealed.

    3. Classic romantic mystery suspense from Phyllis Whitney exotically set in beautiful Maui, Hawaii First published in 1986, it s been re released in kindle format to reach a newer generation and give previous readers a chance to find it again As in most PW books I ve read, family dysfunction plays a major role here with lots of secrets and lies at play Caroline aka Caro Linny is raised by her paternal grandmother in California while having little to no contact with her maternal grandmother in Hawai [...]

    5. The author makes you feel as if you are seeing Maui with your own eyes It is light easy reading with romance and a little mystery.

    7. If you were to look back in my old high school journals, you would see lots of Hawaiian words I learned fro this book I loved it soooo much Rereading it again as an older adult, I agree with my former self that it _was_ a good bok But not as great as I remember it being I actually found it kind of juvenile this time around maybe why it appealed to me when I actually was a juvenile The romance aspect is twisted a little in that both protagonists had been married befored the suspense was spot on I [...]

    8. Typical Phyllis Whitney I haven t read Phyllis Whitney in many years, and it was interesting to see the old fashioned way she wrote For example, she refers to her characters constantly by their first and last names even though when one is three quarters of the way through the book it is not hard to understand that the only character named John must be the John Smith to whom she is referring.

    9. I got a bunch of Phyllis Whitney books at the local Goodwill my favorite place to buy books I bought about 5 of her books and plan to read them all Reading her books again have made me remember why I haven t really read her books much in the past She really reminds me too much of Danielle Steele, who s books I also don t read any Oh well, only 2 books left

    10. I remember reading this in a Reader s Digest volume I found in my basement when I was in middle school I remember enough about it to say that I liked it That s about all I can say it was an entertaining read to pass the time.

    11. Set on a Hawaiian island.I found this good for location description and tourist information, not so much for plot or character.

    12. I read this years ago I also enjoyed other stories by this authorough this is the only one I remember by name.

    13. What a delight to read a book that takes place in an area that you have visited Every description reminded me the beauty of Maui I did enjoy the characters and plot too.

    14. The death of her parents when she was a child removed Carline Kirby from her Hawaiian home When she returns to the Islands as an adult she comes across many secrets about her family.

    15. This book tells a bit of the history of Hawaii and uses some common words which is interesting Caroline s plight and indecision gets old I feel like it might be good for a young adult.

    16. Frankly, I couldn t finish it It was just too slow for me I can remember when I was much, much younger that I enjoyed her books Sigh I guess I grew up and away from her writing style.

    17. Phyllis Whitney was a delightful author of many romance and mystery novels in an era where less is The most inspiring quote in this book comes from an encounter between Dr Reed to Caroline Maybe you have to learn how to give her up I don t mean entirely Stay and help if you can But it s time for you to put your own life first, don t you think You might even find it interesting to face up to your present.Just as you may have to let other lives you ve lived go When we find ourselves in one sided [...]

    18. A well written mystery taking place in Hawaii.Phyllis writes wonderful well plotted mysteries The locations for this story are real and become a big part of the story History of the islands is woven with local flora, and geography The characters are real and move the story realistically.

    19. really enjoyed this book A mystery set in Hawaii, good plot and descriptions of Hawaii right on.
