Happy Friday’s Eve All! It’s time for Book Traveling Thursday! This is my first Book Traveling Thursday, a weekly meme created by Catia @The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. The goal is to share the covers of a book related to that week’s theme, which you will find at the Goodreads group, indicating the original cover, the one of your country, your favorite, and least favorite.

Above is the U.S. Paperback which is both from my country & my favorite. My least favorite is the French edition. This was a cover buy ALL the way but it didn’t hurt that the setting is in Hawaii which is on my list of places to one day experience. My sister saw this book on my shelf & bee lined for it which is why I haven’t read it yet lol. I just got it back & Sis says READ IT STRAIGHT THROUGH! She gave it 5 stars & is still attached to the characters. My sister is not big on Fiction, she’s more into self-help/motivational reads SO this made me raise a brow or two lol. I’m looking forward to reading Moloka’i.
This richly imagined novel, set in Hawai’i more than a century ago, is an extraordinary epic of a little-known time and place—and a deeply moving testament to the resiliency of the human spirit.
Rachel Kalama, a spirited seven-year-old Hawaiian girl, dreams of visiting far-off lands 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 only just beginning.
