Pearl Diver is the story of two sisters, haunted by the twenty-year old murder of their mother and what happens when a farming accident rips away the layers of secrecy and buried trauma surrounding that night.
Marian is a young mother who lives in a remote farming community where she grew up, while her younger sister Hannah left the community to pursue a writing career in Chicago.
When Marion s six-year old daughter Rebecca is badly injured in a farming accident, Hannah returns home to help. As the two sisters struggle with the circumstances surrounding Rebecca s accident and how to pay for her medical treatment, their opposing worldviews drive them toward a penultimate confrontation and reconciliation over their shared past, a past that simultaneously divides them yet binds them together.
4 Stars. Part murder mystery, part family drama, part love story, Pearl Diver is an amazing moving drama. (A) diamond in the rough where passion and skill combust on the screen to truly ignite the audience. One of this years true gems. --IndependentFilm.com
Pearl Diver is a powerful film that touches your heart and brings a tear to your eyes... a must see film!! Simply put this is a fantastic piece of cinema about heartache, love and family values that we can all relate to. The cinematography is breath-taking. --VideoViews.org

Some flaws: A lot of the dialogue is repetitive. Also, spoilers ahead.......
The ending disappoints me as writer. I would not have tossed my hard work away like that. The character could have used a pseudonym and published it as fiction in order to spare others' feelings instead of just chucking it all wastefully.

I was disappointed. From what the jacket said about it, the story was not what I expected. What else can I say, it was a waste of time for me.Published on October 7, 2012 by Amazon Customer
