Item Description...
Making a living out of giving advice to dysfunctional families, radio talk-show host Dr. Diana Sheldon finds her entire life changed in a moment of bad judgment and finds herself struggling against difficult odds to get her family back. Original.

Publishers Description

She had the perfect life until the accident. Now science offers an opportunity to replace what she has lost--but at what cost?

Diana and Steve Sheldon had it all--successful careers, nice home, a lovely teenage daughter, an adorable five-year-old son. But when a freak accident ravages their happy family, Diana, a professional radio counselor, finds herself viewing the world through new eyes of grief--and accepting ideas and situations she would have considered unacceptable only a few weeks before.

When a research foundation offers to restore her loss through a medical marvel, Diana is convinced she has found the answer to her family's anguish. Determined to sacrifice anything that stands between her and healing for her broken heart, she proceeds along a dangerous course, never dreaming that healing might prove more destructive than hurt...

As timely as today's newspaper, "The Pearl" is an honest, heart-rending look at life and faith through a contemporary mother's eyes.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Christian morals and medical ethics  Dec 30, 2006
As with most of Hunt's books, the story in The Pearl takes a while to get going, but once it does the intrigue and emotion involved is enough to keep the pages turning. Hunt dives into the controversy over human cloning and takes it on head-first. To that I say, "Kudos!" Also intertwined in the story are thematic elements involving God's sovereignty, forgiveness, and accepting what life gives us. For anyone looking for a fresh look at the cloning issue and seeking a good story to boot, read The Pearl. It won't disappoint.
Powerful mix of Christianity and current events  Sep 25, 2005
Hunt is one of the strongest writers of our time, Christian or otherwise. Her characterizations are never lazy or weak and her descriptions are deeply moving. The story of Diana seeking her son is extremely relevant in today's political climate. Hunt does a terrific job of researching her subject matter and giving strong debate on both sides. Diana's descent was a little creepy at times, but that's deliberate on Hunt's part. Sometimes we can be equally as guilty of insisting on our way instead of the Lord's way in things. I bawled through the first seventy pages of this book, and spent the rest of it thinking and thanking God for what I have.
Disappointing, to Put It Mildly  Aug 21, 2005
This novel, like (alas!) so much Christian fiction, simply doesn't ring true, specifically in the areas of realistic dialogue and situations. Some church friends of mine recommended books by this author, and being an avid reader of science fiction and books on current technology, I thought this would be the right book to start with. Sorry, but this just didn't click for me, maybe because I never really connected with the main character at all, and, as already noted. the author has a problem creating realistic dialogue for her characters.
A riveting combination of Christianity and science fiction  Jun 24, 2004
After experiencing a tragedy, grief-stricken Diana turns to medical science, sure that technological advances will heal her broken heart. Her single-minded quest alienates her from her husband and daughter, severing relationships, trust, and her career. Only the power of the Lord can bring this broken family back together and heal deep wounds. I thought that this was a great book and could not wait to find out what happens!
The Worst Book I've Ever Read  Feb 28, 2004
This book started out good, but later on it becomes boring and unrealistic in everything except the emotions.
I bought this book thinking it would be an interesting read but I was severly disapointed.
The plot skips around a lot and the main character goes through some "interesting" fazes. (Kicking her husband out for not agreeing about cloneing, etc.)

I would never recomend this book to ANYONE (strangers and enemies included).
