I am full of excitement because today THE WHITE PEARL is published in America. Yes, I do know that it’s Super Tuesday when many of the primary elections are held across the US, so citizens have rather more weighty matters on their mind, and that makes it even more of a nail-biting time.
Authors never know what lies in store for their book as it strides forth into the big wide world of the bookstores, jostled by other books eager to catch a reader’s eye. There is more info for you about THE WHITE PEARL on this website (go on, click on the book cover), but I’ll just tell you here that it is a powerful story set in the steamy heat of Malaya in 1941 – a dark time in that country’s history. It is a tale of love and danger, a clash of choices – both moral and physical – that dramatically alters the lives of all those involved.
Each book we read changes us in some indelible way, just as today could change the future for America. I know in the US you’ll be voting in earnest, but how about a vote for THE WHITE PEARL too?
