Peggy BrownISBN: 0595329640;
Born under an omen of great mana, Puna's childhood was plagued with strange dreams and visions. Soon after her secret was discovered, a powerful enemy struck her with a crippling mental disability. To save herself, Puna committed murder. Now on the run, she finds temporary refuge with the Menehune; legendary little people who teach her to love and trust once more. But that is just the beginning. Will she ever be able to return to her village? And who is this mystical deity that haunts herdreams? A terrible volcanic eruption turns her life up side down and Puna finds herself facing the phantom in the flesh. Is he just a man as he claims, or is he Kamapua'a; the Pig God? Mana's Child is devoted to the spirituality of the Hawaiian people and the many diverse and colorful deities that are a vital part of their history and culture. Journey deep into a past rich in the magic and mystery of old Hawai'i.
