It's Christmas Eve and Maile (May-Lee) is visiting her Uncle Kane’s (Kahn-ay) farm on the island of Kauai. Her visits are always a trial. She's afraid of large animals and has little in common with her cousin Ilima (Eee-leema).
A sudden storm is blasting the island, and the family’s pedigreed bulls have wandered away from the damaged barn. All the hands have gone home for Kalikimaka (Christmas), so it’s up to a reluctant Maile to help Ilima and her uncle find the bulls and lead them to safety.
Working together in the storm, Maile and Ilima really talk to each other for the first time. And because of what they’ve been through together, they listen to each other for the first time.
Exciting reading for all ages.
