Mother of Pearl by Kellie Coates Gilbert

Photobucket

HOW FAR WILL A MOTHER GO FOR HER DAUGHTER?

Barrie Graeber has two great kids, a loving husband, and a respected job as the high school counselor in her close-knit community. Without warning, everything unravels when her teenage daughter, Pearl, is betrayed by friends and lashes out.

Nothing prepares this mother for the helplessness that follows when her attempts to steer her daughter back on course fail and Pearl shuts her out . . . or when she discovers the unthinkable about her nemesis, the football coach.
 
About the Author: Kellie Coates Gilbert
 
 I barely remember a time when I didn’t have a book in my hand. My tiny hometown of Carey, Idaho had no library, no bookstore. The bi-weekly bookmobile provided the only avenue to books . . . that, and my Gram, who spent a lot of her Social Security checks on books for her granddaughter with an insatiable appetite for stories.
 
I grew up on a sheep ranch in southern Idaho, a business my family had been in for generations, never dreaming I’d ever see my own name on a novel. I left home to attend Boise State University and spent most of my adult years pursuing a sensible legal career, raising two boys, and learning to be happily married.
 
But God heard the quiet prayers of a woman who dared to dream big and ask her Lord for the outrageous. In early 2011, I signed my first book contract. Today, I am living my fantasy. I live in Dallas with my husband. I work from home, writing novels. Often by the pool.
Can life get any better?
 
My Thoughts on This Book:
 
This page gripping novel is about Barrie, the mother of Pearl and the spiraling details that show us the private side of her teenage daughter while shedding light on one influential person in her life. This book took my emotions on a roller coaster ride with such real details that any mother prays she'll never have to face in her lifetime. An emotionally gripping story that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the last page. A must read in my opinion.
 
I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review of this book. No other compensation was given.
