A fantastic story from Leah which spans generations and continents, tracing the rivers of Scotland and the Mississippi, The Last Pearl is a sweeping novel of desire and revenge, of family and freedom, and of one woman's journey to open the shell she has built around herself to reveal the true beauty within.
Great as a gift or stocking filler for a friend or loved one to this Christmas...
