"A dazzling historical novel." --The Washington Post "Moloka'i is a haunting story of tragedy in a Pacific paradise." --Robert Morgan, author of Gap Creek "Alan Brennert draws on historical accounts of Kalaupapa and weaves in traditional Hawaiian stories and customs.... Moloka'i is the story of people who had much taken from them but also gained an unexpected new family and community in the process." --Chicago Tribune "[An] absorbing novel...Brennert evokes the evolution of--and hardships on--Moloka'i in engaging prose that conveys a strong sense of place." --National Geographic Traveler "Moving and elegiac." --Honolulu Star-Bulletin "Compellingly original...Brennert's compassion makes Rachel a memorable character, and his smooth storytelling vividly brings early twentieth-century Hawai'i to life." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
