Book: The Women of Pearl Island – Polly Crosby
A novel about an island, a family, and the secrets that live there. The novel begins with Tartelin answering an ad for a personal assistant on an island off the coast of Britain. With only a few inhabitants and a mysterious past, Pearl Island offers an escape from daily life, sadness, and modern conveniences. Tartelin’s employer, Marianne, is a remarkably private woman with a difficult and painful past.
We found The Women of Pearl Island to be a beautiful novel that slowly unravels the stories of Tartelin and Marianne’s pasts, all while searching for evidence of a top-secret event that happened on Pearl Island decades before.
