Mother of Pearl
This is one of those novels that you come away thinking about the realities within the story, and I had to talk about it when it was over. The plotline and extremely real characters evoked strong emotions. Overall, Mother of Pearl is a incredible debut novel, and I am looking to more from Kellie Coates Gilbert. She delivers an inspiring story while creating awareness about a sensitive issue--fantastic job!!
I'm going to do something new with this review and link to a couple of other posts about this book that I enjoyed reading. The first is a heroine interview with Barrie Graeber on Margaret Daley's Blog. I found it to be a fun and informative post! The second is from Lena Nelson Dooley's blog: A Christian Writer's World. She does author interviews and book giveaways, and this post gives great insight into author, Kellie Coates Gilbert.
I did receive a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.
