    In 1866, 12 men and women and one small child were forced aboard a leaky schooner and cast away to a natural prison on the Hawaiian island of Molokai. Two weeks later, a dozen others were exiled, and then 40 more, and then 100 more. Tracked by bounty hunters and torn screaming from their families, the luckless were loaded into shipboard cattle stalls and abandoned in a lawless place where brutality held sway. Many did not have leprosy, and most of those who did were not contagious.

    Overall

    This is a very interesting book, about a fascinating aspect of history. Having read James Michener's "Hawaii," I was familiar with the story of Molokaii. I feel grateful to the author for making Father Damien's story more known. The main drawback of this audiobook, was the incredibly annoying narration. Every character, whether German, French, Dutch, Hawaiian had the same nasal, inconsistent "Pepe Le Pew" accent- SO irritating! If a narrator can't do good accents, he should just leave well enough alone and read it straight.
