The Fifth Pearl

India's trip to Japan in 2013 - The World of Pearl

I have been working on my debut novel, The Fifth Pearl, since traveling to Japan over four years ago. This rich story was brought to me by a flash of insight and I have carried the wish to bring this amazing story to light for a long time. After begging ghost writers to put the story down for me(and none of them working out!), I finally realized it is my story alone to tell.

Follow the story of Skylark Smith, a Japanese-American girl living in Georgia, as she reconnects with her Mother and discovers her Japanese lineage and the secrets of the women that came before her. This novel takes us from Athens, GA to the Shirahama peninsula in Japan.

This is an exciting novel for young adults and adults alike! I cannot wait to share this fascinating story with you!
