Reviews for Black Inked Pearl

Black Inked Pearl by Ruth Finnegan is a really deep, enriching romance story spanning an entire lifetime. This book follows Kate, and it asks the question why did she let the love of her life go so many years ago? Unfolding through time, that question, among other, is answered. This book feels very ethereal and the words used are quite large in scale and imagination. I felt that this book just gave off a really mysterious romantic vibe, and I loved how it felt sort of historical yet in modern times. It’s hard to explain, you will just have to read the book and find out for yourself! Read more...

Black Inked Pearl: A Girl’s Quest by Ruth Finnegan is an unusual romance novel, the first of that kind I am going to come across in a long while. It is a poetic riddle that expresses the journey of a girl, Kate in search of lost love. The novel is set in the dream world, or rather, is conceived in dreams, with images of this world and another intertwining and interweaving to construct an epic quest reminiscent of the kind found in major world writings. There are echoes from the Greek myths, from Irish folklore, from Christian tenets, from African legends and from that indecipherable existence populated by dream beings. It is indeed a magical book.
