A heartwarming story of the powerful connection between a caring soul and an innocent child in need.
In ” an Oyster Shell – This was a story with a lot of strengths. I admire the author’s ability to tell a story with such power in brevity, of a novella, and still leave me feeling like the story was as complete as a novel.
The Pearls – I felt like the author used all of the story elements with great expertise to make a very compelling, heart gripping story.
The tension of the story just kept pushing you forward to get to the end of the story. I really liked how the book focused on the main character, yet you could see the whole story from her perspective. It’s like with the setting and character I felt I was right there in the action the whole book.
I really liked the character development of the main character. She went from being unsure of herself, to coming out the other side of huge challenges to a more centered person. I loved it!
The Sand – This book was literary perfection.
