Ninety-three year old, Theodora has seen and lived through a lot. So when she gathers all of her children, grand children and great, grand children together for the holidays at her home, she lets them all know she will not put up with their attitudes. Though, it won’t be easy. Luckily for Theodora, she has an extra pair of hands in her friend and house keeper,
Pearl. Pearl is just as sassy as Theodora; expect that Pearl wins people over with her kindness. Whereas, Theodora just speaks her mind.

The Christmas Pearl is the first book I have read by author, Dorothea Benton Frank. I hard a very hard time getting into the story or the characters. I could see why Theodora had a sharp tongue. Her children and their kids were spoiled brats. That really turned me off quickly. Not to mention that there wasn’t much of a story line. In fact, I am sad to report but I only got about half way and gave up on this book. I kept reading it hoping it would get better but it didn’t. Not much Christmas cheer found in this novel.
