Author Julie Eberhart Painterabout this book: It's about love that transcends time. Two women, native girl, Kura, and contemporary heroine, Laura, are destined to become the brides of Maui, the shark god. Up until 1769, they had sacrificed a warrior. The year Captain Cook arrived was the first documented sighting of the transit of Venus. He was to find new lands and document the sighting by triangulation from three islands in Tahiti. Cook was also to look for terra australius.

At the transit of Venus in 2012, Laura, a contemporary French teacher travels to Tahiti to search for her biological father, the last navigator to read the waves. The girls' parallel lives clash in an aura of mysticism. Laura is haunted; Kura is doomed. Laura's romance could end in a tragedy similar to her ancestor's.

The readers who would enjoy this book are adventurers and romantics. Daughters also addresses the question of how adoption affects a young woman. (I've lived that confusion.)

I was inspired by Nomads of the Sea, a TV program about the Polynesians leaving Tahiti because of overcrowding and tribal warfare to settle other lands, such as New Zealand, Hawaii, Easter Island and the Cook Islands, all of which we have visited.
