THE SCARLET LETTER by Nathaniel Hawthorne is a legendary classic. If you are like me, you can't help but wonder what happens to the characters after such an incredible first novel. ANGEL AND APOSTLE tells the story of Pearl who had to endure a lot of humiliation because of her status as a bastard child. Pearl grows up and marries her close friend Simon's brother. Simon is blind but he is the only one that is able to fully understand who Pearl is and loves her unconditionally. Pearl knows that there is more to life than black and white, sometimes in order to live life to the fullest, you have to think in shades of gray.
Deborah is a writing genius whose knack for writing becomes apparent in the first few pages. It's pretty hard to live up to the standards when writing a sequel to a timeless romance novel but Noyes carried through with shining colors!
