I read a lot of books, mostly Christian fiction, and during my readings, I discovered a void. While many plots develop and unfold in an African American Protestant church setting, none included the African American Catholic.
The narrative and main character is a down- home southern, witty matriarch name Pearl. Pearl has three children and seven grandchildren. All of whom, she considers her gems.
I hope you enjoy meeting the characters and become anxious for more. The sequel, More Jewels In My Box is scheduled to debut January 2023
