Romance in Hawaii waits for Jean Muirhead as a pleasant ending to her first year after graduation from library training school in Washington. But it doesn't all start with the sunshine and flowers atmosphere of the Islands. First Jean is sent to a small town to find life there far from the dull thing she thought it would be. Then when Rob Hamilton comes with a group of Island boys for a 4-H Club reunion and ski meet, Jean sees something still more appealing- has no trouble making up her mind when Rob, home again, tells her to come to the small plantation where he works, to fill a vacant librarian's post. The author, who has lived in Hawaii many years, writes with a good sense of its more idyllic qualities and has turned out a more credible book than some of the more fantastic success stories for the young.
