Mother of Pearl by Kellie Coates Gilbert

Barrie Graeber has two great kids, a loving husband, and a respected job as the high school counselor in her close-knit community. Then, without warning, everything unravels when her teenage daughter, Pearl, is betrayed by friends and lashes out.

Barrie’s attempts to steer her daughter back on course fail. Nothing prepares this mother for the helplessness that follows when Pearl shuts her out . . . or when the unthinkable comes to light about her nemesis, the football coach.

This is a gripping novel, about a Mother's love and protection, and the daughter she is struggling to reach.
Even as a counselor at the school, Barrie can't seem to reach her own daughter Pearl as she struggles with a boyfriend break up, and fitting in with her class mates. Pearl confides in her the coach, 'mentor to many', yet there is much more going on than that.
The court case is very realistic, as the author is a formal legal investigator and trial paralegal. She bring knowledge of law and justice rightfully so to this book.
It will grip you, if you are a mother, you will not escape this book without tears. God is a redeeming God, despite the hardest difficulties in life. 

MOTHER OF PEARL is a story that puts absolute truths and convictions to the test. It’s the emotionally riveting tale of a woman who finds she must recognize her own vulnerability and learn to trust in something much bigger.
