Despite the fact that the book is very large and heavy, it is very easy to read. I like reading about family saga and to know how pearls (maybe Marilyn Monroe sang that diamonds are the best girl's friend but i personally think that's pearls) was cultivated, hunted and discovered. I recommend this book for summer vacations.

Rich and Compelling - a terrific read

A wondrous tale of the early days for pearling in Australia, and a unique pearl and the people it affected. Like many things f great value, it causes good and bad to flourish. An excellent read and visiting Australia remains on my bucket list. Greatly recommend!

I like books that give me teach me something. This book fulfilled this criteria on several levels at least: it gave me some information about a country, an industry and some history. At the same time, it is a good story that kept my interest.

This is the story of an ancient pearl. Two families had some ownership of the pearl. This took place in Australia. Great book. Good characters.

I'm the author of seventy-something novels, including romance, women's fiction and mystery. When We Were Sisters debuted in June 2016, a stand alone novel about two foster sisters traveling back into their past together. I loved writing it and love the cover my publisher chose.

I'm also excited about my recent series, Goddesses Anonymous, which started with One Mountain Away and was followed by So
