The powerful debut novel from Alan Brennert, Moloka'i tells the story of Rachel Kalama, a seven-year-old Hawaiian girl who contracts leprosy and is quarantined on the island of Moloka'i during the 1890s. Separated from her family and forced to grow up in the leper colony of Kalaupapa, Rachel experiences intense isolation. But she remains strong, finding moments of joy, and even love.

  • This is a historical novel with fictitious characters based on real-life people and events in history which I was completely unaware. The narrator was excellent. It is the type of book that makes one appreciate every day, and realize some people are the victims of dreadful diseases which they must endure every second of every day. It also makes clear that one cannot ever know what the feelings are behind other peoples actions.
