Dorothea Benton Frank Synopsis: The Christmas Pearl is a standalone title by Dorothea Benton Frank. Still going strong at 93 years old, Theodora has lived long enough to see her family grow into an insufferable bunch of truculent knuckleheads. Having finally gathered the whole bickering brood together for the holidays at her South Carolina home, the grand matriarch pines wistfully for those extravagant, homey Christmases of her childhood. She reminisces about the tables groaning with home-cooked goodies, the over-the-top decorations, those long and lovely fireside chats with Pearl, her grandmother’s beloved housekeeper and closest confidante. She misses the love, the joy and the peace. But this is, after all, a magical time. Someone very special has heard Theodora’s plea – and is about to arrive at her door with pockets full of Gullah magic and enough common sense to turn this holiday season into the special time it’s truly meant to be.
