KIRKUS REVIEW

The author states frankly that this is a thinly fictionalized account of the life of Father Damie and his work among lepers in the Hawalian Islands. The facts on which the story is based are correct, and it is easy to take in fiction form. After five rather dull chapters about his infancy and boyhood, the story gains interest as soon as the Hawalian mission begins. Well-written, with a sympathetic attitude toward the hero, which frequently takes on a deeply religious tone.
