Just Juliana was inspired by Marjory's love of Honolulu, Hawaii, which she first visited when she was 23 years old. We first meet Juliana McDermed in Honolulu, on Christmas Day, 1931. She is celebrating her 25th birthday. Juliana's Hawaiian band and dance group are invited to entertain high- ranking government officials from Canada and New Zealand, who will arrive that day in Honolulu on Empress Class liners. Anthony Kirkland, a young lawyer with the Canadian delegation, sees Juliana dance and sing, and is captivated by her. She also notices Tony, and feels "drawn to him." But she notices his sadness, too, and when she finishes dancing, she acts: "I slipped over, taking off my lei of red and white carnations. Putting it around his neck, I leaned up to kiss him on the cheek Just Juliana is a story of family, of love and fortunes won and lost, and of travel and ideas. It is the saga, from the 1850s to the 1970s, of six families whose lives cross and entwine. The McDermeds, the Fergusons, and the Clintons hail from Scotland. Some remain there, while others emigrate, to France, Jamaica, Tahiti, the eastern United States, and Hawaii. The Kaiminis are Hawaiians, born and bred. The Kirklands trace their ancestry to Norway, and the Maitlands to the American Revolution. Marjory Harris was 89 years old and legally blind when she first thought about writing. Although blind, her memories of her travels were fresh and vivid; she bought a computer, memorized the keyboard, and wrote three travel books. That accomplished, she began this work of fiction.
