Amalisa is set apart. She is tiny among the folk of her village. She was born with a birthmark that mars her face. And she possesses the magical gift of a pearl singer-she can sing in multiple voices at the same time. But in Amalisa, the gift extends beyond the pearls. Because of her power, she will be taken far from her home, her village, her loved ones, her land. In her long and unexpected journey, she must learn to accept herself as she is, overcome her fears, and embrace her powers in order to deliver herself, her friend, and the man she loves from those who threaten her life with their greed. The Pearl Singer is a magical version of Thumbelina, set in a world of ritual and grace, of greed and betrayal, with a twist on the ending.
