    The powerful debut novel from Alan Brennert, Moloka’i tells the story of Rachel Kalama, a seven-year-old Hawaiian girl who contracts leprosy and is quarantined on the island of Moloka’i during the 1890s. Separated from her family and forced to grow up in the leper colony of Kalaupapa, Rachel experiences intense isolation. But she remains strong, finding moments of joy, and even love. Rich in Hawaiian history, this novel proves itself a stellar piece of historical fiction.

    In Terms of Endearment, Larry McMurtry created some of his most memorable characters. He now reintroduces us to Aurora Greenway along with her family, friends. and lovers, presenting a funny and bittersweet story about growing up and growing old.

    A User says: "NOT 'TERMS OF ENDEARMENT', BUT FUN"
    "Extremely Poor Listen"
    Overall

    I cannot remember when I have last read(listened to) a worst book. It was a struggle for me to get through all three parts. The characters are not believable and the dialogue is dreadful.
