Pearl lived a solitary life. Other children were told to stay away from her. Pearl entertained herself with her natural surroundings. She would sing and dance. She was almost a happy child and happiness was frowned upon. Pearl amused herself and stuck close to her mother who was also an outcast. Pearl lead an internal life and yet was a free spirit not yet beaten down by Puritan culture.
