Daughter Of Moloka'i

Author(s): Alan Brennert
Infant Ruth arrives at the Kapi'olani Home for Girls after being taken from her mother, Rachel, who has spent most of her life quarantined at the isolated leprosy settlements of Kalaupapa. Ruth is adopted by a Japanese couple who raise her on a strawberry and grape farm in California, and she later marries. But in the midst of World War II, her world is turned upside down as she and her family face internment at Manzanar Relocation Center. Then, one day after the war, Ruth receives an unexpected letter. The signature at the bottom reads, "Rachel Utagawa."
