THUNDER IN HEAVEN by Armine von Tempski


Email this review


Romance and leprosy in the Hawaiian Islands with a picture of the people and their life that has the same warmheartedness and color of the author's autobiographical Born in Paradise. April, engaged to Dale, impulsively returns to her homeland. Thord, escaping unmerited scandal in New York, is rehabilitated by the kindness and direction of plantation doctor, Kauka, a half-white, whose duties and devotion to leprosy research, promise Thord a future. Thord and April fall in love with the obstacles of her family, Thord's disgrace in the States, April's fiance, are not removed easily, while Thord and Kauka's unauthorized work with a hidden colony of lepers contributes further problems, and provide situations of particular appeal for feminine readers.
