If you were to look with a greedy eye, a fearful eye, or any other kind of eye, Ella Haver would know because she could see your soul-light – though she was glad you couldn’t see hers.
Reeling from a heartbreaking loss and disturbed by the appearance of a mysterious stranger, Ella is sent to stay with the Beers – distant, down-to-earth relatives.
Well-to-do but weird, she’s viewed with suspicion and curiosity by Billy, Jake and Midge and clings to an old Greek locket for comfort.
Just when things settle, they’re thrown into confusion as they discover Ella’s link with a hidden island – a mystical sanctuary – which falls under the gaze of the evil eye.
With her sense of self shaken, Ella leads the others into danger as they try to defend a quite different eye.
Would they succeed? And could Ella’s light ever be bright again?
The Eye and the Pearl weaves myth, magic, wisdom and adventure into a journey of self-discovery.
