Books are amazing. Big surprise right? I love that they can take you to the past, a different world, the future, wherever you want to go. Beats television any day. I know it’s an extra fantastic read when I’m thinking about the book throughout the day, at work (I hate when that gets in the way of my reading) and I’m looking forward to when I can dive back into the world I’m reading. That was the exact case with Veil of Pearls by MaryLu Tyndall.
Sometimes stories can be cheesy beyond what I can tolerate, but not so with Veil of Pearls. Taking place in Charleston in 1811 and following Adalia and Morgan, two people from two different classes and lifestyles, the story deals with standing up for what’s right, struggling to figure out purpose and trusting your faith, even in the darkest of times. Plus a little love story never hurt any one right? Tyndall is a fantastic story teller and you can’t help but get swept into 1800s Charleston.
I really enjoyed this book and will definitely be adding more of Tyndall’s books to my book pile. Plus the heroine of our story is mixed (she’s one fourth black) and to that I say MY PEOPLE!! I haven’t come across many (by many I mean zero) characters who are 1/4 black like me, so I think that means there’s a dashing and handsome man in my near future. Totally. 😉
