The Four Seasons Book Group is dedicated to moms who like to read but just can’t find the time to take part in a monthly book group.

The Four Seasons book club will meet only four times each year, giving you time each season to read and digest the book at your leisure.

Our relaxed evening discussions will be accompanied by indulgent snacks and include, at your convenience, the movie version of the novel.

For more information, please contact Janice LeDuc at

Book Description: 

“This richly imagined novel, set in Hawai’i more than a century ago, is an extraordinary epic of a little-known time and place – and a deeply moving testament to the resiliency of the human spirit.

Rachel Kalama, a spirited seven-year-old Hawaiian girl, dreams of visiting far-off lands like her father, a merchant seaman. Then one day a rose-colored mark appears on her skin, and those dreams are stolen from her. Taken from her home and family, Rachel is sent to Kalaupapa, the quarantined leprosy settlement on the island of Moloka’i. Here her life is supposed to end – but instead she discovers it is only just beginning.

With a vibrant cast of vividly realized characters, Moloka’i is the true-to-life chronicle of a people who embraced life in the face of death. Such is the warmth, humor, and compassion of this novel that ‘few readers will remain unchanged by Rachel’s story.’”
