Well, it’s been a while since I worked on the second book. I am still struggling with a title. The working title is “The Cultured Pearl”. My plan was to continue Pearl’s story at the age of 12. A lot has happened to switch my original plan. I have been getting feedback from readers how “Pearl’s” life mirrored their own in many respects. These readers were also born and raised in the 50s, and some in the 40s. They could identify with Pearl’s life.
With the cultural changes or unmasking of existing social mores, my creative mind has been expanded beyond just Pearl’s own world, the world of the adults in both 20th-century, as well as, the 21st-century challenges.
Stay tuned. The story is beginning to unfold.
