Loved Moloka'i, and this is a great follow up- and not just because of my upcoming Hawaiian vacation! Tells the story of Regret, a girl born just before the turn of the century (20th,) in Korea. She becomes a picture bride and comes to Honolulu and creates a life amid the racial upheavals of the early 1900's. A fascinating portriat that includes real life people and events. ( )

Enjoyable story a lot like Memiors of a Giesha. However, I felt I was dragging my heels sometimes because there is a lot of history and language thrown in especially towards the end of the book. At times I felt the plot and characters were written just so the history could be told. ( )
