Gathering Pearls Book Review
Emotionally starved and neglected by his work-addicted father, Will quickly forms a bond with his doctor. Love for Will is the catalyst that begins the painful healing process of the two doctors and for their families. The sub plots and background stories of the characters are intriguing. I was drawn into the drama, anxious to solve mysteries and to discover the root of the conflict between Hamilton and Jameson. I was surprised by some revelations and rejoiced with each character as they overcame personal battles.
I enjoyed “Gathering Pearls” and recommend it for your leisure reading. It is a story of real people dealing with some very real and all to common problems. Although not a typical “Christian novel,” it is written in a family friendly format and expands on a Biblical theme. On the first page is a quote from 1 Corinthians 1:27, “But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.”
[The Message translation puts it this way. - Isn't it obvious that God deliberately chose men and women that the culture overlooks and exploits and abuses, chose these "nobodies" to expose the hollow pretensions of the "somebodies"?]
This book is pleasurable light reading, taken at surface value, but I suggest going a little deeper and looking for the “nobodies” and the “somebodies.”
