Fabuleuse Moloka'i by Collectif Summary

Ce chapitre de Moloka'i extrait du guide Ulysse Hawaii vous propose de découvrir l'île de Moloka'i à l'aide de renseignements sur les attraits touristiques accompagnés par un système d'étoiles. Ce chapitre de Moloka'i est extrait du guide Ulysse sur Hawaii. Ici tout est lent, tout fonctionne au rythme du Hawaiian time. Pas un feu de circulation, pas un centre commercial, pas une discothèque ne vient troubler sa lancinante quiétude. L'île n'est guère balnéaire, ses quelques plages étant le plus souvent balayées par des forts courants. Peut-être est-ce cela qui explique pourquoi Moloka'i, avec 30 fois moins de touristes que Maui, est l'île la moins visitée d'Hawaii. Si peu commerciale par nature, elle est aussi la plus traditionnelle, la plus proche du style de vie d'autrefois.

Moloka'i by Alan Brennert Summary

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.

Moloka'i : La prisonnière du paradis by Alan Brennert Summary

« Une éblouissante saga historique... » - Washington Post Hawai, 1892. Rachel Kalama, petite Hawaïenne de sept ans à l’esprit vif et malicieux, rêve de visiter des contrées lointaines à l’image de son père, qui officie dans la marine marchande. Jusqu’au jour où une tache rosâtre apparaît sur sa peau, et où ses rêves d’ailleurs s’envolent aussi sec. Arrachée à son foyer et à sa famille, Rachel est envoyée à Kalaupapa, campement de quarantaine installé sur l’île de Moloka'i. C'est là que sa vie doit se terminer – mais elle s’aperçoit qu’en réalité, elle ne fait que commencer. Débordant de chaleur, d’humour, de compassion, et fort d’une galerie de personnages campés à merveille, ce chef-d’œuvre de narration nous parle d’un peuple qui, face à la terrible réalité de la mort, a choisi la vie.

Daughter of Moloka'i by Alan Brennert Summary

NOW A LOS ANGELES TIMES BESTSELLER | NAMED A BEST/MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK BY: USA Today • BookRiot • BookBub • LibraryReads • OC Register • Never Ending Voyage The highly anticipated sequel to Alan Brennert’s acclaimed book club favorite, and national bestseller, Moloka'i "A novel of illumination and affection." —USA Today 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.

The Hawaii Novels by Alan Brennert Summary

Alan Brennert's novels set in Hawai'i are spellbinding. A "master of historical fiction" (San Francisco Chronicle), Brennert's storytelling is brimming with warmth, humor, compassion, and vividly realized characters. Moloka'i Rachel Kalama, a spirited seven-year-old Hawaiian girl, dreams of visiting far-off land like her father, a merchant seaman. Then one day a rose-colored mark appears on her skin, and those dreams are stolen from her. Taken from her home and family, Rachel is sent to Kalaupapa, the quarantined leprosy settlement on the island of Moloka'i. Here her life is supposed to end—but instead she discovers it is just beginning. Honolulu Traveling to Hawaii as a "picture bride" in 1914, Regret finds not the affluent young husband and chance at education she'd been promised, but a poor embittered laborer who takes his frustrations out on his new wife. As she makes her own way in this strange land, with the help of three fellow picture brides, she prospers along with her adopted city. But paradise has its dark side, whether it's the struggle for survival in Honolulu's tenements or a crime that will become the most infamous in the island's history.
