Molokai, A Novel by Alan Brennert

By Alan Brennert

Rachel Kalama, a spirited seven-year-old Hawaiian girl, dreams of visiting far-off lands like her father, a merchant seaman. Then one day a rose-colored mark appears on her skin, and those dreams are stolen from her. Taken from her home and family, Rachel is sent to Kalaupapa, the quarantined leprosy settlement on the island of Molokai. Here her life is supposed to end—but instead she discovers it is just beginning.

Brimming with warmth, humor, compassion, and a vibrant cast of vividly realized characters, Molokai is a masterpiece of storytelling about a people who embraced life in the face of death.

Alan Brennert is an Emmy award-winning screenwriter and bestselling novelist who lives in Southern California, but whose heart is in Hawaii.

Soft cover. 389 pages. Reading group questions included in the back of the book. Measures approximately 5.5 inches by 8.5 inches. Printed in the U.S.

Perfect

Everything was perfect. My husband is a Veteran and enjoyed this gift very much. Thank you.

Enjoyed the book I always like reading real history.
One of the cups was completely destroyed, sent you an email when received got no reply, not happy on this
Got no geek patch or black tears.
What I did get intact (book & 1 cup) proved to be quite expensive…………

Loved it so much we bought it twice

My parents brought this shirt back as a souvenir for my 4 year old daughter. She wore it constantly until the day she discovered scissors 😭. She cut it up and was so proud of herself until I freaked out, then we both cried… I would usually take this opportunity to teach a lesson about scissors and say “sorry, you’re SOL.” But this gift was so loved and I felt she learned her lesson when she realized she had ruined it rather than improving it.

Great quality sticker

I bought it to put with my photo book and keepsakes from my trip to visit this incredible memorial.

Great coin

Just a beautiful tribute to those who served at Pearl Harbor on that fateful December 7th.
