Book Description :

Young Rachel Kalama, growing up in idyllic Honolulu in the 1890s, is part of a big, loving Hawaiian family, and dreams of seeing the far-off lands that her father, a merchant seaman, often visits. But at the age of seven, Rachel and her dreams are shattered by the discovery that she has leprosy. Forcibly removed from her family, she is sent to Kalaupapa, the isolated leper colony on the island of Moloka'i. In her exile she finds a family of friends to replace the family she's lost: a native healer, Haleola, who becomes her adopted "auntie" and makes Rachel aware of the rich culture and mythology of her people; Sister Mary Catherine Voorhies, one of the Franciscan sisters who care for young girls at Kalaupapa; and the beautiful, worldly Leilani, who harbors a surprising secret. At Kalaupapa she also meets the man she will one day marry. True to historical accounts, Moloka'i is the story of an extraordinary human drama, the full scope and pathos of which has never been told before in fiction. But Rachel's life, though shadowed by disease, isolation, and tragedy, is also one of joy, courage, and dignity. This is a story about life, not death; hope, not despair. It is not about the failings of flesh, but the strength of the human spirit.

Book Description :

A classic story, this young adult adventure book takes readers to the Hawaiian Islands. The Secret Cave of Kamanawa is a story about a secret burial cave of an old Hawaiian ali’i or chief. It provides the adventure which both the main characther, "Boy" and the reader experience. The Hawaiian chief is an ancestor of the Cat-Woman, and she is rightfully proud as she tells of how he gained in marriage the hand of a lovely Molokai princess. And when she tells Boy of the ritual of burying chiefs in secluded caves, she is not aware that anyone would attempt to find them, much less the youngster who is eagerly clinging to her every word. The search for the cave takes you over the mountainous terrain of Hawaii, much as you would find it if you were to go there now. This is a story which might take place even today in Hawaii; who knows, perhaps you can do exactly what Boy did in searching for The Secret Cave of Kamanawa.

Book Description :

As girls enter their tween and teen years, it’s especially important for them to have an open and growing relationship with their father. Unfortunately, this is often the time when parental relationships are strained. The One Year Father-Daughter Devotions can foster communication and understanding; and it’s a wonderful way for a father to bond with his daughter during a crucial point in her life. Each of the 365 devotions begins with an introductory story, then daddy-daughter time provides discussion questions, activities, or other practical applications of the daily lesson. A “What’s the Word” section gives a related Bible verse to help bring God’s Word alive as father and daughter apply the Scripture to their lives. Written by three fathers, the devotions have a tone that is conversational and relatable: the authors use everything from flavored potato chips to the Etch-A-Sketch game to share truths about God’s Word and to help fathers and daughters relate to each other.

Book Description :

The highly anticipated sequel to Alan Brennert’s acclaimed book club favorite, and national bestseller, Moloka'i Alan Brennert’s beloved novel Moloka'i, 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 Kapi'olani 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 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. Told in vivid, evocative 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.

Book Description :

During the last half of the 1800s through the early 1900s Chinese migrated from their villages in the Pearl River Delta in Kwangtung Province (Guangdong) and many found their way to the neighbor islands in Hawaii. This fascinating collection of oral histories is filled with the voices of their children and grandchildren. They tell stories that are both universal and particular about the lives of the early immigrants and their families and how they adapted to their new home in the Hawaiian islands, even as they held fast to their ties to China. These colorful, multigenerational stories paint a larger picture of the cultural traditions and social life of that time and illustrate how these immigrants became part of the fabric of Hawaii. Reference materials and maps provide useful resources for those wishing to trace their own roots. The Introduction provides a valuable backdrop for the individual family stories as it describes the geographic, political, historical and economic context that shaped the patterns of immigration from the early 1800s and its impact. It also highlights the important roles that the Chinese pioneers played as craftsmen, laborers, and entrepreneurs in developing Hawaii's economy, particularly its agricultural industries on Maui, Molokai and Lanai.

When June Kato takes her daughter Melanie to Molokai for a wedding, they never expect to have so much fun. Most of their adventures that weekend are filled with ghost hunts, from the beaches, across lava fields, and even in their bed and breakfast inn. Until they stumble across a pair of ancient skeletons on the hidden cave and things take a turn. There might be one ghost too many in this story of old Hawaiian battles--and the ghosts that still haunt a small tropical island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean!
