Read full description of the books The Wishing Pearl:
Sixteen-year-old Olivia Mansfield dreams of a land far, far away. . .
A land far away from her stepfather’s abuse and torment.
A land far away from her mother’s blind eye.
A land far away from the haunting memories of her past.
But then reality sets in, and Olivia knows she must make the best of her dire situation—at least until her high-school graduation. But when poor choices lead Olivia to the brink of a complete breakdown and she finds herself dealing with the unexpected death of her best friend, she comes to a crossroads.
Will Olivia find the path to ultimate hope and healing that her heart longs for?
Or will the demons from her past prove too much to bear?
“I dare you to put this book down once you’ve picked it up. I love Nicole’s writing! She leaves out the parts that I would skip over and compels me to turn the page. The Diamond Estates series is no exception. It's equally gut wrenching and heart warming.”
Phil Callaway, advocate for Teen Challenge, and author of Laughing Matters, and Making Life Rich without Any Money
