Item description for Inlaid Pearl by Stacie G. Vesolich...
Overview Escaping the killing fields of the war-torn Balkans and embarking on a journey to find religious freedom in America, Annastasia finds happiness in the arms of an amiable musician, Dimko, who plays a mandolin adorned with inlaid mother-of-pearl butterflies. From humorous dialogue mimicking Annastasia's struggles with English syntax ("How did you came; did you drove?") to poignant recollections of her triumphs and tragedies, including the drowning death of her son as he tries to save another man's life, Inlaid Pearl, a non-fictional saga, chronicles the lives of three generations of women. The story characterizes a strong ethnic culture and family undergirded by a compelling faith in Christ.

Reviews - What do customers think about Inlaid Pearl?
Slavic culture Jun 21, 2005
Inlaid Pearl is a true and fascinating account of one family's immigration to America and the family's cultural and spiritual journey over many generations. I loved the subtle humor of the book, the cultural tidbits that those of us from a Slavic background can particularly appreciate, and the very meaningful conclusion to the book.
