Super Read

by Menzrob on Nov 8, 2014

I not only recommended this to a friend, i gifted it to one! When she recommended The Island by Victoria Hislop, I knew she'd love this one too. I've read both books and found them equally educational and inspiring. Leprosey should be a sad subject, but the stories of how the people on these islands built strong communities and lives makes for some very inspirational reading. Enjoy both!

Beautiful book

Mr. Brennert takes a very sad part of our history and gives us insight and hope. I could not put it down.

a real page turner

by Mary T G on Apr 17, 2014

Love this book the history & the terrible living conditions of the lepers but it is still a beautiful love story. Love the way Rachel has made the best out of a lousy situation. Have a hard time putting it dawn.

Wonderfully educational story

by Giselle S on Mar 6, 2012

It's a well written, touching story and I highly recommend it. I learned alot about leprosy and the treatment of people who were afflicted in Hawai'i. Despite the devastating nature of the effects of the illness and the cruel exile of those people to quarantine, the story is incredibly moving and human. It is such a divine read.


Excellant Book

by Liberallady on Mar 26, 2009

I really enjoyed this book. In fact I took a trip to Molokai to visit the leper colony after reading it. There are 22 lepers still living there and it was a very moving experience that I am really glad I had an opporturnity to take.
