Description

Hawaii! The very word evokes visions of Paradise - white, sandy beaches; swaying palm trees; silver waterfalls, hula girls; mai tais; and luaus. But all is not paradise in Paradise in the months leading up to World War II. Beneath the glitzy exterior lies a seamy underbelly of sex, drugs, corruption, and violence in a part of Honolulu known as Hotel Street, where lines of servicemen regularly lead into the "hotels," which feature one form of entertainment, and one form only: sex. Three dollars for three minutes. Nineteen-year-old Sadie MacKenzie finds herself trapped in this bizarrely efficient assembly line of prostitution just prior to the Pearl Harbor attack. Her head once filled with dreams of a singing career, she unknowingly finds herself in an entry-level position she never dreamed awaited her: whore. Isle of Broken Dreams tells of her struggles to escape from this life before she loses her soul.
