In Denmark, the railway is a string of pearls. In Europe, the pearls of this necklace are Paris, London, Vienna and Naples. Here, we see six pearls of the Danish railway and quickly find that it is easier to travel since the invention of the train! Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was a Danish author, poet and artist. Celebrated for children’s literature, his most cherished fairy tales include "The Emperor's New Clothes", "The Little Mermaid", "The Nightingale", "The Steadfast Tin Soldier", "The Snow Queen", "The Ugly Duckling" and "The Little Match Girl". His books have been translated into every living language, and today there is no child or adult that has not met Andersen's whimsical characters. His fairy tales have been adapted to stage and screen countless times, most notably by Disney with the animated films "The Little Mermaid" in 1989 and "Frozen", which is loosely based on "The Snow Queen", in 2013. Thanks to Andersen's contribution to children's literature, his birth date, April 2, is celebrated as International Children's Book Day.

Her book contains thirty-three stories filled with pearls of wisdom gathered from Marjorie's own experience of turning her 'irritants' into something lovely, just as an oyster makes a pearl.

While the Bible has been documented to be the most-published and most-sold book ever, how many people actually take the time to open, read, and study this precious gift? If we truly believe this Book is from God Himself and contains the Way of salvation, shouldn't we cherish It as the most valuable treasure we could possibly possess? With the help of the Holy Spirit, shouldn't our lives reflect the passion of these priceless Words? My granddaughter likes to wear a necklace to church, so I gave her a necklace of pearls that my wonderful son-in-law had given me upon returning from the Philippines on business. I explained to her that one day this necklace of pearls would belong to her, making them very special because they came from her Daddy. This book contains a few of the verses I love to ponder, share, and cherish. They are Pearls that my Heavenly Father gave to me, to you, and to the entire world as a message of His love and forgiveness. I want to share several of these priceless Pearls and share what each means in my life hoping to encourage you to develop your own string of Pearls. May a true passion inspire each of us not only to collect these Pearls but also to share them with the people in our lives who are in need of help and healing. By the power of the Holy Spirit, may our string of Pearls grow into a necklace of Pearls that will sustain our faith now and throughout eternity. By the grace of God, may we pass on this priceless necklace of Pearls to future generations that they may hold God's love letters, the Bible, close to their heart resting secure in His promises now and throughout eternity.
A String of Pearls is a heart-warming and heart-wrenching story about three generations of women and their struggles in love and relationship. It is a story of Ignacia Sanchez who was forced to marry a man she did not love; of Berta Chan who married the man she loved but physically abused her; and of Teresa Andrews, whose doubts and fears about love and relationship almost cost her the love of her life. It is a story of a daughter who wanted to be like her mother and another who did everything not to be like hers; of daughters trying to understand their mothers; and mothers, their daughters. In the end, no matter how different they may be, they will always be like a string of pearls, for they are of the same kind.

The need to write came into my life unexpectedly and with such force that it left me no choice but to follow. I published my first book Short Stories: The Story of a Refugee with Vantage Press in 1997. In 2003, I published the first book of a trilogy Thiana - AVDELA - A Macedonian Village in the Northwestern Greece: Thiana's Native Land and in 2004, I published the second volume of the trilogy ATHENS with iUniverse. American Publishing Company has published "America - The Final Destination", the third book of the trilogy. My poetry is published in the Best Poems and Poets of 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2005, The Theatre of the Mind, and The Celebration of Honors as well as Who's Who in Poetry 2004 and 2005, editions by the International Library of Poetry. In May 2002, I obtained my Laureate Certificate from the International Library of Poets. I am the recipient of the Editor's Choice Award, 2002, 2003, 2005, from the poetry.com site as well as the President's Award for Excellence in Literature from the National Authors Registry. What does poetry mean to me? It's a way to express deep feelings, to share with others my philosophy and understanding of life, and to give testimony of my faith in God.
