"Pearl and Angela" is a suspense-filled story that profoundly chronicles the emotional damages of hatred and cruelty and the miraculous healing power of love. The characters come to life, providing on-the-edge-of-your-seat entertainment and intrigue. Pearl Little grew up an only child in a typical late 1940's Midwestern town in the shadow of a maniac, Barry "Pop" Little. Pop had ranted his expectations all of Pearl's life, and after his death, his words haunted her. A trip to the Fair with a young man Pearl had fallen in love with and his best friend, without Pop's permission, tragically altered their lives. Angela Bowman was tossed from a car and left on the side of the road in town and Pearl happened upon her. Pearl brought Angela home and the two women's lives flourished, clashed, and healed. Angela had been sold at the age of six to a brothel owner in a nearby town. To escape her past, Angela craved the one thing she thought would set her free . . . money. Money to run, to live the high life, to be free of anything she found confining.Pearl and Angela came together and each supplied the others needs. They developed a comfortable existence, and then the unimaginable happened.
