New book “PEARL: A Journey of a Lifetime” from Page Publishing author Dorothy A. Campbell is moving, humorous, educational, insightful, and serves as both a personal history of a woman and a nation. This is a story which spans decades and deals with life, death, love, redemption and every human emotion in between.

Dorothy A. Campbell, a retired R.N. who now operates a business from her home, has completed her first book “PEARL: A Journey of a Lifetime”: a gripping and potent life spanning literary journey that will sweep readers into the past and experiences of an adventurous woman.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Dorothy A. Campbell’s poignant tale is a wondrous tapestry of words woven from the threads spun on the spinning wheel of life.

There are many stories of African-Americans who migrated north during the 1960s and then returned to the South for their golden years, but there is only one Pearl Hammond. Pearl: A Journey of A Lifetime will take you from a rural farm in the South to The Motor City at the height of the Motown era. Laugh and cry with Pearl as she builds an award-winning career and falls for “Mr. Music," only to see her marriage crumble despite her best efforts.

Between her travels to Jamaica with "The Crew" sisters that she established at her workplace, her transfer to New York City, and her secret relationship with a man who gave her the hope to live in her darkest hours, Pearl Hammond has lived a full and fascinating life. That journey continues in her final years with her dear "cousin" Horace, a boy she played with as a little girl, back in Beaufort, South Carolina.

Two truths have dominated Pearl's life, even into her late 60s: she attracts the looks of every man around her, and she has kept her private life private…until now.

Readers who wish to experience this epic work can purchase “PEARL: A Journey of a Lifetime” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
