The Helix Pearl: The Story of the Winedark Garrulous Sea – A Tale of Love and Daring by Ruth Finnegan is the story of Kate as she navigates her life on and off the tumultuous sea and realizes there is more to life than she ever imagined. The sea sees it all. It could tell what Kate was feeling, what she was going through and it could feel her confusion as well. When Kate stood by the sea, cut to the heart, the sea knew Kate was going to have an uphill battle from thereon. She was going to work hard to find the love she once rejected and she would have her work cut out for her. Universe has its mysterious ways and it wants you to give equally for the amount you will take. Can Kate understand this before it is too late? Can she find the passion within to love herself or will she fail to find it forever?
Ruth Finnegan is a master of words. She knows which words to use to weave magical images in your mind and transport you into the lives of her characters. The Helix Pearl is as unique as Black Inked Pearl; it is just as ambitious, beautiful and powerful enough to make you get lost in its pages for hours on end. The narrative is original and unique; the voice of the sea is peaceful and tranquil, even when Katie’s life was in chaos. Reading this was like listening to a story of legend by my grandmother. It had action, it had suspense, it had a powerful heroine and it had a story that kept me riveted until the end. This is great and will be loved by readers who enjoyed Black Inked Pearl.
