At times, life can be a real mess. It is, has been or will be. There’s no escaping it. We all experience on one level or another, the untidiness, disorder and dirt of life. Life’s Messes! Some of us don’t mind the drama, trauma and maladjustment of the mess, but many of us recognize the need to be “set free” therefore, realizing that in doing so, love wins. Tahitian Pearl (from the gritty dune to an oasis in the Sun) is a compelling story of family drama, where the messes of life (infidelity, drugs and more) demonstrate how we judge, misjudge and drift. However, grace and mercy can set us free and let love win. This book, because of its multidimensional and complex characters is ideal for book clubs as it provides endless discussion possibilities.
