The highly anticipated sequel to Alan Brennerts acclaimed book club favorite, and national bestseller, Molokai

A novel of illumination and affection. --USA Today

Alan Brennerts beloved novel Molokai, currently has over 600,000 copies in print. This companion tale tells the story of Ruth, the daughter that Rachel Kalama--quarantined for most of her life at the isolated leprosy settlement of Kalaupapa--was forced to give up at birth.

The book follows young Ruth from her arrival at the Kapiolani Home for Girls in Honolulu, to her adoption by a Japanese couple who raise her on a strawberry and grape farm in California, her marriage and unjust internment at Manzanar Relocation Camp during World War II--and then, after the war, to the life-altering day when she receives a letter from a woman who says she is Ruths birth mother, Rachel.

Daughter of Molokai expands upon Ruth and Rachels 22-year relationship, only hinted at in Molokai. Its a richly emotional tale of two women--different in some ways, similar in others--who never expected to meet, much less come to love, one another. And for Ruth it is a story of discovery, the unfolding of a past she knew nothing about. Told in vivid, evocative prose that conjures up the beauty and history of both Hawaiian and Japanese cultures, its the powerful and poignant tale that readers of Molokai have been awaiting for fifteen years.
