Book Description

September 1996
The Enchanting Story of a Family Treasure That Becomes a Legacy

It had all begun on their honeymoon. Lizzie had been so young then. Young and vibrant and beautiful. And now she was still beautiful in Duncan's eyes. Perhaps even more so. He loved his Lizzie. She had stood by him through the good and the bad. Someday, as soon as he could manage it, he was determined to get her something really special. Something that would speak of her true worth and his deep love.

A string of perfectly formed pearls it would take Duncan years to save the money required to purchase them. But his carefully kept secret, his sacrificial gift, becomes a symbol of the family legacy. And with the passing of time, for their last great-granddaughter who has a very special need, the pearl necklace will take on extraordinary value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Janette Oke is the greatest June 1 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This little book is so sweet. I am a grandmother and I love to do things like hand down items to my children and grandchildren. I have never had pearls, but, it is a must for all age readers as all of Janette Oke's books. They are so clean but still have a little bit of romance in them. I own almost all her books and would love to have them all...I bought the Meeting Place not relizing that it was a series and the next one comes out next year, I can hardly wait....

I really like this book because I got someting out of it. I feel that I became a better person by reading this book, therefore it was worth my time. The characters are very real, and quite believable. The plot is easy to follow, yet complicated in the sense of human nature. I think anybody with a sense of depth to their personality would be able to appreciate this book.
