Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Insightful, exceptionally researched, and richly descriptive! A Pearl for My Mistress takes us back to the 1930s, the interwar period, and gives an in-depth look into the formation of the British far-right movement and Germany's influence and infiltration of British politics and high society. The prose is fervent and captivating. The main characters include the scarred, loyal, enamored Hester and the bold, independent, resourceful Lucy. And the plot unfolds chronologically with a nice mix of historical events, intriguing fiction, social strife, forbidden love, political manipulation, and heartfelt emotion that keeps the story flowing from start to finish. A Pearl for My Mistress is a well written, fascinating novel that highlights Fielding's incredible knowledge and enormous passion for a period of time that is often forgotten and overlooked.
