DAUGHTER OF MOLOKA′I is the highly anticipated
sequel to Alan Brennert’s acclaimed book club favorite,
and national bestseller, MOLOKA′I. It’s a companion
tale that 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
Kapi’olani Home for Girls in Honolulu, to her adoption
by a Japanese couple who raise her on a 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 Ruth’s birth mother, Rachel.

DAUGHTER OF MOLOKA′I expands upon Ruth and
Rachel’s 22-year relationship, only hinted at in
MOLOKA′I. It’s 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.

In prose that conjures up the beauty and history of both
Hawaiian and Japanese cultures, it’s the powerful and
poignant tale that readers of MOLOKA′I have been awaiting for fifteen years.
