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.… (més)

In Moloka’i and Daughter of Moloka’i, by Alan Brennart, Moloka’i was the home of a leper colony, way into the last century, long past when I though leprosy was a credible disease. When Hawaiians begin showing the first signs of illness, they’re sent to Mokolai, even if that means taking young children away from their parents. Some parts of the books are a bit hard to read, because of the brutality and harsh laws of the Molokai colony, but it’s an accurate picture. There’s a lot going on in this two novels about the colonization of Hawaii and the disparity between local Hawaiians, Japanese residents, and haole. Daughter of Moloka’i tells the story of Ruth, the healthy baby Rachel has on Molokai, but is forced to give up. The connecting threads of friendship and family love make the two books ultimately uplifting. ( )

Daughter of Moloka’i (Moloka’i #2) by Alan Brennert

February 2019
Fiction, historical
St.Martin’s Press and NetGalley

I received a digital copy of this ARC from NetGalley and St Martin’s Press in exchange for an unbiased review.

Originally published in 2004, Moloka’i (book 1) by Alan Brennert provides a richly detailed history of Rachel Kalama’s life growing up in a leper colony on Moloka’i, Hawai’i during 1891 to 1948. “Kalaupapa had evolved from a “given grave” where the afflicted could only wait for death to a place where people lived as well as died.”

Rachel lived a full, meaningful life on Kalaupapa where she married Kenji Utagawa. In 1918, they made the heart wrenching decision to put their only child up for adoption. Once it was determined that Ruth was not afflicted she was sent to live in Kapi’olani Home, an orphanage.

Daughter of Moloka’i provides a parallel history of Hawai’i from the perspective experienced by Ruth Utagawa during 1891 to 1948. The historical aspects of life during these years is not overlooked. The author provides well-researched information which allows the reader to understand the hardships and devastation of the time. Ruth was adopted by Taizo and Etsuko Watanabe, a Japanese family, with 3 boys desperately wanting a girl to add to their family. She eventually goes on to marry Frank Haradas and have 2 children of her own.

The stories entwine to provide perspectives of family life and loyalty. Although this novel could easily “stand alone” the emotional family history is enhanced with the “complete” story explained in Moloka’i. ( )

This book was not as good as Moloka’i. The characters were mostly either good or bad, and their relationships were either always great or terrible. There was little nuance or human flaws. That said, the book was still an engaging read. The section on the Japanese Internment Camps was eye opening for me and made the book well worth the read. ( )

This book highlights a shameful event in American history when Japanese Americans had their homes, businesses and possessions taken and were placed in internment camps for long periods of time in places that were foreign to them after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. Ruth is at the epicenter of this novel. She was born to Japanese/Hawaiian parents on Molokai who had Hansen's disease, formerly known as leprosy. Deemed to be free of the disease, she was raised by nuns until she was four without a knowledge of her birth parents, when she was adopted by a loving couple with two sons. They eventually moved to the United States. Ruth is married with two children at the outbreak of WWII when the Japanese are targeted as potentially subversive. The question as to why people of German and Italian descent aren't also targeted is haunting - the only reason can be that aren't readily visually identifiable.

Ruth's life follows an interesting life trajectory as she learns more about her past. It was helpful to have read Rachel's story in Molokai #1, which I well remember and which led to learning more about Molokai and its haunting history. ( )
