Genre: Historical Fiction
Another one to check off the TBR pile for the 2008 TBR Challenge! I've heard so many good things about this book, and it lived up to those things. Don't you love it when that happens?!
This is the story of Rachel, a girl who is diagnosed with leprosy in the late 1800's when she's only 6 years old. She is taken from her family and banished to the island of Moloka'i where she lives most of the rest of her live. This is all about that experience, some good stuff, some bad stuff. Lots about creating relationships, losing relationships, and finding each other. I loved it! It had me teary-eyed in many places. Wonderful story!
Next time I go to Hawaii, I hope visiting this island is on the itinerary.
