I was honored to coauthor with Sonia From Alone To Aloha: The Sonia Lien Story, published in 2010 (alohasonia.com (http://www.alohasonia.com/
)). From Alone To Aloha is the story of the life of Sonia Lien (1935- ), musician, performer, survivor. This story chronicles a journey of hope, from the destructiveness of bigotry to one woman's overcoming bigotry. It is also a faith journey, from the searching mystic heart of a broken child to reconciliation with her Creator, from abandonment to healing and joy, from profound loneliness to profound celebration and reunion with lost family in the best traditions of human experience, Shalom, and Aloha. -- Mahalo nui loa. Aloha kākou.
Recently Sonia was diagnosed with stage three liver incursion cancer.
Cancer doesn't need to translate into fear.
For some cancer is trumped by hope.
This is Sonia Lien.
From Paradise To Paradise.
