SEEKING SARA SUMMERS by Susan Gabriel is one of the most engaging novels I've read lately.

Susan Gabriel perfectly captures the twenty (plus) year marriage of most of the women I know, including me. The writing is superb, and for those who must have third person POV, here it is -- well done.

Sara's self-rediscovery is encouraging, though her life takes on a twist that most women won't experience. It is hopeful that the cautious-caretaking-zipyourcoat-fastenyourhelmet-Iloveyou mom can learn to breathe easy again and find her forgotten self after the kids are launched 'safely' into adulthood. I only hope we are as brave as Sara.

Seeking Sara Summers is a great read and if I did book reviews, I'd give it a million stars for courage and hope.

  1. Wow, Nadine, this is a wonderful review! I'm so glad you enjoyed the book and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind words.

    In all my writing, my goal is to create a good story. And if the book offers courage and hope to even one person, then I feel like I've done my job well.

    All the best,
    Susan Gabriel
