Fran Hasson is a mother of two fine sons and is a retired teacher. She has lived in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, U.S. Virgin Islands, Germany, and now makes Delaware her home. During her off-duty time, Fran has visited over 40 countries and 25 States. She has drawn on her experiences living in the Virgin Islands, and she has spun them into a yarn involving a box of ashes that actually did wash up on a Delaware beach.

This is the kind of book that you want on a long airplane flight, or on a cruise, or for a beach vacation. I say that because it literally hooks you into the story from page one, and it's one of those "can't put down" reads! If I were sitting on a plane with several hours to get through, I would love a book like this! I started reading, and literally hours passed before I realized just how long I had been at it!
I have never traveled to the Caribbean, but having read this book, I'm pretty certain I know what the Virgin Islands are like: and now I can't wait to visit! The imagery here is excellent, and the prose is fluid and open. Reading this book felt like the rhythm of Caribbean life as the author described it. It was an especially welcome book for these long, dark winter evenings!
Highly recommend "Allawe". I will be buying copies to give as gifts to friends.
Not being a huge fiction fan, I'm amazed at how quickly I was drawn into the story and how smoothly it flowed. Not a page was wasted on non-pertinent description or detail; every paragraph moved the story line - and a clever one it was - to its surprising finale.
A well-written, brilliant first novel; I hope there will be more to follow.
I loved the vivid descriptions, the action, and the tight knit community of St. Croix, and recommend this book to anyone looking for an entertaining read that has a surprising, satisfying ending.
