Can their love survive two very different cultures?

Lily Walsh has never imagined anything like America. From supermarkets and swimsuits to the way women look men directly in the eye, she's baffled by this strange new land.

Left in the care of Jeff's best friend, Gabe Kapaia, and his family, Lily discovers the paradise of Oahu's north side at the Kapaia Resort. But she walks a fine line between two worlds. Can she embrace her new experiences without breaking her promise not to shame her missionary father? When Lily finds herself falling for Gabe, her heart is torn. Will her upbringing force her to make the difficult choice between true love and family honor?

Sweet and heartwarming story
4 stars By Rachael, Oct 16 2017
I regularly enjoy Lori Wick's novels. I feel her characters are realistic and I quickly develop a genuine interest in understanding their story. 
"Bamboo and Lace" tells the story of Lily Walsh, who experiences Hawaii after a lifetime of missionary work in a remote Asian village. Lily faces many challenges as she reconciles what she is seeing and experiencing in Hawaii with what she has always known - a world of freedom, excess and flaunting compared to her upbringing under authoritarian, restrictive submission. 
As Lily is brought into a kind and lovely family, she learns to live with a beautiful balance of her two worlds. 
I really enjoyed seeing how kind friendship ministered to and brought healing to Lily's heart, and how she was able to demonstrate honour to and encourage those who were around her in Hawaii. 
A light read, with clear Biblical truth woven throughout, showing the power of kind friendships.

Lovely story
5 stars By Alyce, Nov 29 2015
This heartwarming story is a great easy read. Perfect for a holiday novel.

 I love Lori Wick and this book is quite different from her other novels. She depicts very realistic cultural differences and the difficulties this causes are very believable. Christian themes and scriptures are woven throughout the story. 

My mum read the book and loved it too. One of my favourite books by this author.
