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.
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.
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.
Molaka'i is a heart warming and inspirational story. You come to know each of the characters and feel the rage and shame that they themselves felt. This is a beautiful story that represents a time in American history that many (including myself) may not have been aware of.
