Are there dark forces at work and is a child in danger?

Is her mad dash for freedom about to unravel?
Or can she summon the courage needed to win?
Planting Pearls is a psychological mystery with a haunting twist.

“A magic combination of mystery, myth, Hawaiian folklore, and ghosts. Characters are dimensional and likable, the locations are richly drawn, and the tightly woven plot pulls everything together for one surprisingly good read. I loved it. ” Amazon reviewer
