If you were to look with a fearful eye, a greedy eye…or any other kind of eye, Ella Haver would know, because she could read auras.
‘You can see the soul-light,’ she was once told, but had not asked why.
Reeling from a heart-breaking loss, Ella is sent to stay with distant, down-to-earth relatives.
Well-to-do but “weird”, she’s viewed with suspicion and curiosity by the three Beer youngsters and clings to an old Greek locket for comfort.
Just as things begin to settle, they’re thrown into confusion as they unwittingly discover Ella’s link with a hidden island sanctuary, under threat of exposure and exploitation, where they encounter mystery, danger, adventure…and themselves.
Drawing on mythology, perennial wisdom and the mystical eye, The Eye and the Pearl explores perception, everyday duality and the nature of reality.
If we alter the way we view our world, the world we view may alter too.
