For Fiction Friday today, I’m posting a duplicate of the review from Readers’ Realm of my romance, Searching for Sara. If you would like to purchase my book, it is still on sale for 99 cents in digital format at all online retailers.
Searching for Sara
by Nona Mae King
Review by Bethany Jean
At the request of Christopher and Carla Lake, Sara Little heads to America. Her trust in the Lord is the only thing keeping her going, but the changes in her life don’t stop with the adjustment in location.
When she alights from the train, Sara finds a brand new and horrible surprise waiting for her.
Through the challenges of becoming a professional artist, Sara is forced to look at her life through different eyes. And through her new life and acquaintanceship with the people responsible for the changes in her life, she’s able to bring about transformation in their lives as well.
The descriptions of the art and the inspirations for it in this book show that the author is a true artist and has experienced the same feelings herself. Nona King’s writing shows a depth of feeling and an extensive knowledge of the history of the period. I love reading about the history before and immediately after the Civil War, and I thoroughly enjoyed the history aspect of this work.
This book drew me in from the get-go. Searching for Sara is a story of poverty and humility, a story of hope from a beginning of hopelessness, and a surprising story of love. The way the author deals with grief and the aftermath of tragedy impressed me. Having read some other books by this author, I was really looking forward to reading Searching For Sara, and Nona King did not disappoint.
Searching for Sara is available at Amazon.
