    Moloka'i by Alan Brennert - Tells the story of one girl's life in a leper colony on Hawaii. Though the topic of leprosy sounds depressing, this is a book of hope, joy and triumph. Great historical fiction.

  • Tami Dale

    Historical fiction based on the beautiful Hawaiian Island of Moloka'i where a leper colony was located. Full of history and hawaiian folklore.

    MOLOKA'I - Worth reading. Alan Brennert.com for more information. Loved the historical perspective of the leper colony and how the people lived and died.

    Love this book - Molokai, by Alan Brennert, all about a little Hawaiian girl in a leper colony in Moloka'i in 1891. Gorgeous descriptive prose gives you a feel for Hawaii back when it was an island nation. This beautiful book totally touched my heart, was sad in some places, taught me a bit about Hawaii, and surprisingly, made me laugh in a couple of spots. Good book. ~~ Houston Foodlovers Book Club
