    2. Around ten years ago, someone in my book club selected Moloka i as our monthly read I wasn t sure I d like the book as I knew very little about Hawaii or leprosy, but it was a chance to learn By the end of the novel, I was in tears and had scheduled a trip to visit the islands It was a major hit at our book club meeting and I fondly recalled the book for several years Last month, I was searching NetGalley to see what was newly released when this book showed in my queue WHAT, A SEQUEL I qui Aroun [...]


    3. I had been anxious to read this novel since Molokai was one of my all time favorite books I think the descriptive writing in this book is just as wonderful as in his previous novels First the descriptions of Hawaii were breathtaking and it was hard to believe that anyone would want to leave there But I m getting ahead of myself The story really starts when Ruth a little girl of 8, is living in an orphanage on the islands because her mother was forced to give her up If you haven t read the f I ha [...]

    6. I worked with the author on verifying historical facts, linguistic and cultural terms, so I read the advance original manuscript i was knocked out by Alan s gift how he makes you feel the essence of every character and puts you in their shoes This sweeping epic covers 54 years from 1916 to 1970 and takes you from Honolulu to Northern California to the Japanese American concentration camps of World War II where 120,000 loyal immigrants and citizens were interned for 3 4 years simply because o I w [...]


    7. I won this book through the giveaway program Thank you so much, A good enough read, though simply written About a girl born to lepers and raised first by nuns, then a family in Hawaii Eventually she comes to mainland US, gets caught up in an internment camp during WWII and yes, meets her birth mother It s a looong tale but it never drew me in.I tend to read mysteries, books with puzzles in them, characters with great depth who say and do and think in remarkable ways and this book j I won this bo [...]
