She had the perfect life until the accident. Now science offers an opportunity to replace what she has lost--but at what cost?
Diana and Steve Sheldon had it all--successful careers, nice home, a lovely teenage daughter, an adorable five-year-old son. But when a freak accident ravages their happy family, Diana, a professional radio counselor, finds herself viewing the world through new eyes of grief--and accepting ideas and situations she would have considered unacceptable only a few weeks before.
When a research foundation offers to restore her loss through a medical marvel, Diana is convinced she has found the answer to her family's anguish. Determined to sacrifice anything that stands between her and healing for her broken heart, she proceeds along a dangerous course, never dreaming that healing might prove more destructive than hurt...
As timely as today's newspaper, The Pearl is an honest, heart-rending look at life and faith through a contemporary mother's eyes.
Sue Gary1 Stars Out Of 5August 19, 2009Sue GaryI did not like this storyline. The subject would be distasteful to God and I do not approve, either. The ending left you pondering where the next chapter was. Definitely, not one of Angela best books and I really like her as an author.
sherri5 Stars Out Of 5March 21, 2009sherriI give this book fives stars because i finished it 2 days ago and it still has me pondering and affecting me emotionally.
Lisa1 Stars Out Of 5June 19, 2008LisaUnfortunately, I did not enjoy this book. I am enjoying reading all of the "Women of Faith Series"and this was my first disappointment. The book was dreary and depressing and did drag on. I read Christian fiction to be entertained and spurred on by a good character who is strong in his/her faith. This book did not deliver that. If you want a book that is relaxing and refreshing, this is not the one.
Mary2 Stars Out Of 5September 5, 2007MaryAlthough I am an avid reader and often finish a book in one read, it took me days to finish this one. It was dreary, depressing, and not quite believable that a smart Christian would get that sucked in. While it may be important that this subject be addressed in today's world, this was not the best approach. Angela Hunt is a better writer than this book would reveal.
Janine3 Stars Out Of 5August 8, 2007JanineJust did not like this one. The subject is very displeasing and had me in a funk until I was done. Felt the "crisis" of the story was over told and the "result/resolution" was under told.
