BIRD OF ANOTHER HEAVEN is a delightful tale of a San Franciscan seeking his roots. Once Rosa contacts Dan, the story line becomes one sitting throughout as readers will want to more about his Hawaiian ancestry and that missing tape/5(16).

Bird of Another Heaven. From the author of the highly acclaimed Snow Mountain Passage, this emotional and compassionate novel, set both in modern times and in the late 19th century, tells the compelling story of a California woman who became a consort and confidante of the last king of Hawaii/5(36).

Bird of Another Heaven starts a little slowly but picks up momentum as the two parallel stories converge. Although it never quite reach the heights of Snow Mountain Passage (pun unintended!) it is nevertheless an excellent historical novel that highlights new aspects of the well covered settlement of California, and will take most readers to places new in its exploration of the history of Hawaii continued.
