In entertainment: Meryl Streep, Patty Duke, Susan Trustman Leider, Phyllis Diller, Carla Borelli, Lolita Davidovich, Natalie Wood, and Pearl Bailey. The perfect gift for a new bride, Mother's Day, a close friend, a birthday, a "get well" gift. String of Pearls: A Mother's Wisdom is dedicated to Mary True, an accomplished and well known Baltimore musician. In 1983 Baltimore Magazine named Mary True "Baltimore's Best Cocktail Pianist" and in 1989 she received a Congressional Achievement Award praising her for her "exemplary contributions to the field of performing arts."
Marie True Evans, her daughter, and author of String of Pearls, fondly remembers her mother's "pearls of wisdom" which she shares in this book along with selected "pearls" from the author's relatives, friends and colleagues. A majority of the profits from the sale of this book will go directly to benefit breast cancer research.
