moloka’i

Sometimes my lack of knowledge amazes even me.  Last night I was up late finishing Moloka’i, one of the best books I have read in a long time.  It is a fictional story, interwoven with real characters and history, of a girl in Hawaii in the late 1800’s who is arrested because she has leprosy, and is sent to a leper colony.  Not only did this book touch my heart, as the main character, Rachel, goes through the trials of growing up absent from her family, but I learned a piece of history that I had never known.  Read Moloka’i.  You will enrich your mind and your heart.

Here’s the link to the Amazon information and review.
