What a delightful Christmas story!

93 year old Theodora grew up in a happy home ( the home her and her children still live in) full of love, laughter and respect with great traditions every Christmas, but Theodora¿s children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren are the complete opposite and poor Theodora doesn¿t know how to fix it. While growing up Theodora¿s family had a housekeeper/cook/friend named Pearl who always made everything better Theodora wishes she could find another Pearl to fix her family but Pearl has been dead many years. But Christmas is a time for miracles and getting what you wish for; Christmas starts out awful for this family till a miracle named Pearl, working on getting her wings, swoops in to fix this family.

This was a great story humorous and touching all about family and just what that means, also about miracles and believing in them. What was great was it was never preachy but just a great story. If only we all had a Pearl of our own to fix all the ills in our own family!

If you are looking for a good Christmas story give this one a try!

    Heartwarming

    The Christmas Pearl is a heartwarming story. The narrative flows smoothly and is very easy to read. Although it is a bit short, it has lots of feel-good moments. The characters are well developed and you get pulled in to their lives and struggles. I totally loved this story and highly recommend it to readers who want to read something that will leave them with the warm fuzzies.

    fantastic

    I couldn't put this book down from the time I started reading. The characters were very well developed, and very real. The dialog was natural, funny, and had a message that should be heeded by most of us in today's world. Can't wait to read more of this author.

    Heartwarming Christmas Story -Tradition, Nostalgia and Recipes

    A heartwarming e-short story to set the mood for Christmas and its traditions--- of course set in the low country in South Carolina. 93 yr old Theodora grew up in a happy southern home and has fond dreams of Christmas past and all it joy it brought. Now traditions have gone by the wayside and she has grown to despise it.

    While she was growing up her favorite person was their former housekeeper Pearl. However, Pearl died years ago. However, Christmas is a time for miracles so Pearl shows up to fix this family and their issues.

    Granting wishes – a miracle happens and Pearl shows up to fix this family. A cute story for a cold winter evening by the fire with a bit of nostalgia and some recipes to boot.

    Highly Recommend

    I loved this book (CD)I've just discovered Dorothea Benton Frank. The story line was very good. Ms. Weston does a wonderful job with the southern accents, it brings back memories of those wonderful southern voices I heard as a child.

    A Pearl of a book!

    A CHRISTMAS PEARL by Dorothea Benton Frank is truly must read. Frank has gotten a handle on the spiritual side of life and the work that angels do in our every day lives. I love all books by Frank, but this one is an especially beautiful story to be read any time of the year.
