“The Girl With One Pearl” is the third of Bettye Adler’s “Famous Five” series. It takes place in New Hampshire in the late summer of 1924. The story follows Bettye as she moves back home to Georgia from the west coast to live with her sister, Doty. This is where her tragic love affair with Fezzik comes to light. She gazes at him in awe as he admires the sunset, but he ignores her request for a ride home. As their friendship blossoms, Bettye learns that her sister had secretly been trying to seduce Fezzik since he visited their cottage on the southwest coast.
On their way back from the train, Bettye’s sister decides to stop at a hotel, which proves to be a bad decision as their cab driver is armed and ready to shoot if they do not get out of the cab. Their luck worsens when a drunk driver hits them, and then a group of German Bundists come out of nowhere, gunning down the driver. Betty and Fezzik are saved by the cabbie’s son, who then places a satchel bomb under the driver’s seat.
