In the last innocent days of pre-World War II Honolulu, two people meet almost by chance: Keo, a gifted jazz trumpeter native to the islands, and Sunny, a fiercely independent beauty of Hawaiian and Korean heritage. As their love grows, youth and ambition propel them into a world that is spiraling into madness. From New Orleans to Paris to Shanghai, through the horrors of Pearl Harbor, Nazi occupation in Europe, Japanese prison camps, and beyond to Hawaii's struggle toward statehood, Song of the Exile paints a mesmerizing portrait of a people and their history.

    " Incredible read about the "comfort women" of WW2 whom I had never even been aware of. An incredible novel which weaves the history and culture of Hawaii into a truly captivating story. Kiana Davenport paints a picture of hawaii with her words that puts you right there with the wonderful smells of the island and the smiles of her people. I will be looking for other reads by Kiana for sure "

    " Keo is a self-taught Hawaian musician. Sunny is his soul mate. Starting in the early 1930s, this story follows their journey to New Orleans, Paris, and Shanghai where they are separated by WW2. It tells the horror of the interment camps, and the even greater horror of the largely untold story of the Japanese comfort women. From Shanghai and Rabaul, it travels back to Honolulu where redemption of a kind is found. Beautifully written, mythic and epic in quality. Highly recommended. "

    " an important part of the ww2 story, that is left out. the story of women held as sex slaves for the japanese, and also of hawaii'n indigenous struggles. one could also read 'shark dialogues' as the 2 are connected. "
