I just finished reading Veil of Pearls, a wonderful Transformational Fiction novel about a woman struggling to value her identity in Christ over man. That endeavor isn’t made easy for her as she masquerades with the affluent though she is actually a slave with African roots.
As if the beautiful cover isn’t enough, I was so excited that MaryLu brought back the spiritual imagery that’s been in other stories of hers. Even though I’ve read many of her books this novel kept my interest and surprised me over and over. I laughed out loud often and enjoyed every minute!

She Thought She Could Outrun Her Past.
“Be swept away to Charleston of 1811, a city bustling with immigrants like Adalia, who is a runaway slave so light-skinned that no one guesses her past. Terrified her secret will be discovered, she settles into a quiet life making herbal remedies for a local doctor. But when Morgan, the handsome son of a prominent family, sweeps her into his glamorous world—a world in which the truth about Adalia’s heritage would ruin them both—suspicions and petty jealousies are aroused. What will Morgan do when he discovers that the woman he has fallen in love with is a runaway slave?”
Truly a beautiful read full of surprises and the stellar writing I’ve come to expect from MaryLu Tyndall.
It will make you think!
