Product Description

Details

By Alan Brennert

Rachel Kalama, a spirited seven-year-old Hawaiian girl, dreams of visiting far-off lands like her father, a merchant seaman. Then one day a rose-colored mark appears on her skin, and those dreams are stolen from her. Taken from her home and family, Rachel is sent to Kalaupapa, the quarantined leprosy settlement on the island of Molokai. Here her life is supposed to end—but instead she discovers it is just beginning.

Brimming with warmth, humor, compassion, and a vibrant cast of vividly realized characters, Molokai is a masterpiece of storytelling about a people who embraced life in the face of death.

Alan Brennert is an Emmy award-winning screenwriter and bestselling novelist who lives in Southern California, but whose heart is in Hawaii.

Soft cover. 389 pages. Reading group questions included in the back of the book. Measures approximately 5.5 inches by 8.5 inches. Printed in the U.S.

Reviews

  1. Moloka'i - most excellent book Review by Coda
    Rating

    This book is truly one of the best I've read in ages. It's one of those books I didn't want to end. Having visited Kalaupapa about a month ago, reading this fictional story set in a real place, with real historical people, meant all that much more to me. The author has done an excellent job of capturing the experience these people went through as exiles, patients and members of a vital community. Rachel, the main character, will grab your heart on page one, and will never let it go. If you have been to Kalaupapa, or plan to visit in the future, I can't recommend this book highly enough, as I said above, I didn't want it to end. (Posted on 1/5/2018)
