Rachel Kalama was quarantined for most of her life at the isolated leprosy settlement of Kalaupapa-- and forced to give up her daughter at birth. Ruth is taken to the Kapi'olani Home for Girls in Honolulu, and adopted by a Japanese couple who raise her on a farm in California. During World War II Ruth and her husband suffer internment at Manzanar Relocation Camp. After the war, she receives a letter from Rachel. As the two meet and come to love one another, Ruth discovers a past she knew nothing about. -- adapted from jacket

Read and enjoyed this as a follow-up to Molokai. One glaring error in the book that the author acknowledges and has fixed in the ebook and paperbacks coming out soon, is the use of the word "hajukin" to mean a white person. The word should be "hakujin".

Both books, "Moloka'i" and "Daughter of Moloka'i" have stories where women and families are 'put away' because of times, feelings and thoughts. Wonderful stories that tell how two women and their families survive it. Author Alan Brennert has done well.
