Between Sky and Sea: A Family’s Struggle
Ka Palapala Po‘okela Honorable Mention for Excellence in Literature
Set in contemporary Hawai'i, BETWEEN SKY AND SEA: A FAMILY'S STRUGGLE is an episodic novel that tells the story of three brothers struggling to negotiate their identities in the wake of cultural loss, drug addiction, and family tragedy.
When personal conflict leads Ka'eo Teixeira to question the choices that he has made while exploring his cultural heritage, he abandons those that he cares for in pursuit of his own path forward; a decision that ultimately leaves him guilt stricken and alone, and in the company of a high-school friend and noted meth dealer.
As rumors of Ka'eo's whereabouts begin to surface, Mark, the second oldest, grapples with the responsibilities that he has to his family and the independence that he has been working toward his entire life, with a sudden loss forcing him to accept actions and events that are beyond his control.
Consumed with grief and anxiety over their family’s decay, Elani, the youngest of the three, denies his present and takes on a new identity elsewhere. But when news of his brother’s fate leads him to confront his past, Elani returns to discover his future in the wreckage of a life left behind.
An account of a family’s fight to persevere, BETWEEN SKY AND SEA captures the difficulty of recovering what matters most from the depths of what remains when all that’s left to find is ashes.
