it was amazing

I read this book many, many years ago and have always remembered it as one of my favorite books. Tabitha King aptly named the book after the main character, Pearl, because she is not only who the story is about but truly is the essence of the tale and what draws the reader in. I can’t say too much more until I’ve had a chance to re-read it as a now middle-aged woman and see if the book still affects me as it once did. I’ll keep you posted…

Alison Scarrow I've been re-reading Pearl since about 1990 (a friend gave me her copy and I've never given it back). It is my absolute favourite novel . Only one other book (Up in Seth's Room) has affected me this way over the long term. What I have found interesting, is that my daughter has 'borrowed' the follow up novel 'One on One' and I doubt I will get it back, as it resonates with her even tho she was born in 1996.
