We’ll be discussing Honolulu by Alan Brennert

The rich, unforgettable story of a young “picture bride” who journeys to Hawai’i in 1914 in search of a better life. With its passionate knowledge of people and places in Hawai’i far off the tourist track, Honolulu is most of all the spellbinding tale of four women in a new world, united by dreams, disappointment, sacrifices, and friendship.
