Historical fiction about a young Hawaiian girl who contracts leprosy and is sent away from her family to the lepers compound on Molokai. Heartbreaking story - the way Rachel was torn from her family and the way all the patients were treated was horrible. Lots of period details and rich descriptions of the island setting. Should make for a good book discussion.
