Overview

The Top End of Australia-a tropical paradise filled with beauty. Wonder. Danger.

For two young boys growing up in the Northern Territory-half-Aboriginal Jarrah "Jad" Yindi and his best friend Luke Lawson-the remote beaches and aqua waters of the Top End are a playground of adventure. And as two best friends become young men, true love washes over them like the sea upon the sand.

But life is full of challenges and change, and if Jad is to discover who he really is, he must piece together his ancestral past, his dream-filled present and his uncertain future to become the man he was always destined to be.

Through water and fire; through love and loss; through the days of youth to the stories of the world's oldest living culture, journey across the heart of Australia-

-to discover what's in the heart of one young man.

Meet the Author

From palace-hopping across the Rajasthan Desert to sleeping in train stations in Bulgaria, from spinning prayer-wheels in Kathmandu to exploring the skull-gated graveyards of the indigenous Balinese tribes, Geoffrey Knight has been a traveller ever since he could scrape together enough money to buy a plane ticket. Born in Melbourne but raised and educated in countless cities and towns across Australia, Geoffrey was a nomadic boy who grew into a nomadic gay writer. When he’s not travelling the world, Geoffrey is travelling the world of his imagination—where the adventures, thrills and romance are limitless.

He currently owns his own advertising and design agency which he runs from his island home on the Great Barrier Reef, and can't wait to buy his next plane ticket—whether it’s real or imaginary.

As I sit here typing up my review for The Pearl, one word comes to mind. Stunning...simply stunning! This vibrant coming of age story of Jad and Luke is so beautifully written, it will sneak into your heart. This story had me so riveted from its gentle beginning to its climatic ending that I sat and read it in one sitting. The time span runs from their childhood to young adults and I feel I have lived every moment with them. The all characters have such depth I hesitate to think of any of them as secondary. Author Geoffrey Knight of description of Australia is done in such rich detail and clarity I had no problem imagining everything in my mind. I would not just say this about any book but I absolutely love to see made into a movie. Not only for the beautiful story but for the background setting as well. If you are to read one book this year from a recommendation, make it The Pearl. I received this book from JeepDiva in exchange for my honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated. Stars - 5 Flames - 2
