    One thought on “A Most Precious Pearl”

    1. I love this series. The history seems to be really well researched (not my period but the author evidently knows her stuff) and it's just so atmospheric. The series is very much informed by Christian faith, which isn't my cup of tea, but is absolutely essential to the characters and setting though, by its nature, it's not a conflict I bought into emotionally in quite the same way I did A Virtuous Ruby. A writer going places, and I am totally sticking with this series. A Treasure of Gold up in No [...]

    2. Beginning with one of the most heartrending openings I've read in a while, Piper Huguley's latest book left me teary and hopeful at the same time. Her second title in her Migrations of the Heart series explores the effects of WWI on African American veterans who came back changed by their experience overseas and on homefront women who took their jobs but were forced to leave them when the vets returned (just as in WWII). Huguley artfully gives us a story about racism, colorism, the increase in l [...]

    3. Beautiful. Poignant. Thought provoking. These are all words I would use to describe this second story in the Migrations of the Heart series. From the journeys of self worth that both the heroine and hero find themselves, to the racial battles and injustices they both face I was riveted by Mags and Asa's story. I thought they were well matched for each other and I enjoyed their blossoming romance. I love how in all of Piper's stories she addresses important issues while reminding us all of import [...]

    4. Asa was injured in the war and now he's home and depressed. Asa goes to Georgia to save a friends sister who's in trouble. Mags is head strong and has her mind made up about how to exact revenge on the mill owner. As Mags and Asa journey to love there are a lot of obstacles being thrown in their way. The characters are well written and the story is also well written. I really enjoyed this story.

    5. I didn't read the first story in the Piper Huguley's 'Migrations of the Heart' series but I didn't see any indication that it can't be read as a standalone so off I went. I wanted to like this story; I mean I really wanted to. Initially I thought that my expectations were too high but is a good plot and a good (historical) romance from the perspective of this African American hero and heroine too high of an expectation? I will admit that one of my favorite romances of all time is Beverly Jenkins [...]

    6. After thoroughly enjoying the first book in this series,A Virtuous Ruby, I was keen to read the second Bledsoe sister’s story. Mags is the quiet sister who keeps her head down and does all the hard work, even if she isn’t always given credit for it. Yet she surprised her entire family when she opted to work in the town mill, especially considering all the bad history between her family and the mill owner. But just because Mags is quiet, doesn’t mean she doesn’t have plans – and she’s [...]

    7. It's ridiculous how long it took me to read this book given she short length and my extreme interest in this author and this series. Let's hope my distractions can be kept at bay!A Most Precious Pearl takes us back to Winslow, Georgia, where Mags has been working in the local mill, earning $5 a week to help her family. Like Ruby, Mags is a spitfire, misses and loves her Uncle Arlo and her now-dead fiancee, both who died in lynchings for speaking their minds. Winslow Newcomer Asa Thomas arrives t [...]

    8. The kind of read that kept me fuming and swooning in equal measures. And what a fascinating historical backdrop! 1919 is a time of change. The war is over and men are making their way back home and into jobs that women have been holding for years. I'm still grinning over the righteously indignant Mags as she watches a stranger from the north take over her management position. Poor Asa -- not the way to endear himself to the fiery woman. In fact, I adored the dynamics between these two -- Asa, te [...]

    9. I first became acquainted with Piper through her book, A Virtuous Ruby which was released earlier this year. After reading it I knew I would read the next book in the series, A Most Precious Pearl. This book is about Ruby's sister Mags. She isn't quite the "troublemaker" that Ruby is in the fight for equal rights, but she does have a plan for change. A kink develops in her plan when disabled veteran Asa comes to town at the request of Ruby.Who was this man coming along and changing the world she [...]

    10. Ms. Huguley's tales are rich in history and I find myself drawn to the past of my ancestors in this book and find myself grateful to come from such a stock of people who had to fight all kinds of hardships.Mags and Asa story is wrought with tension both internally and externally. Right after the WWI, Black soldiers wanted to be better treated and were killed for their pains. No good deed goes unpunished. I think Asa's predicament grabbed me the most because I think of our soldiers who are maimed [...]

    11. I was given an advanced copy from netgalley and Samhain Publishing for a honest review. Well with a sister's interference Mags(Margaret) and Asa story begins, a journey of healing of the soul. This is my first read by this author. It was also my first African American historical romance. What I loved about the book was the author's ability to share the rich history of the african american experience of those times. If you had not read the first book the author did a masterful job of letting you [...]

    12. Great story!I felt that the author did an excellent job of writing about race and relations in the 1920. She got you involved in the story.

    13. ExcellentI loved the story. It is sad that people still have issue with your skin color. It is a wonderful to know that the Lord is always there when we need him.

    14. Great Book! A page turner and a true testament of the turmoil in the south for African Americans and how they survived. A wonderful love story of two people amidst the turmoil.
