Review: Moloka'i by Alan Brennert

Book: Moloka'i by Allan Brennert
Genre: Historical Fiction
Rating: A
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.


  1. I can't wait to read this. I doubt I'll ever get to Hawaii, so I'll have to read about it.

  2. This was one of my favorite books of 2007. I loved it too!

  3. This book has intrigued me since I first heard about it!

  4. Yours is the second review I've read on this book, and it continues to sound so good!

  5. Hehehe...I just reviewed this book as well!

  6. I've heard of this book. I'll have to look for it.
