Overview

Was her life ever really fun? Was there ever any passion? Will she find the courage to change?

Sara Summers Stanton has raised three children and works as a high school teacher at the same school she attended growing up. Her 25 year marriage is showing cracks in the façade and now she’s dealing with breast cancer.

In a rare moment of taking care of herself instead of everyone else, Sara takes a sabbatical and goes on the trip to Italy she has always dreamed of taking. This search for a more authentic life leads to Julia, a friend she hasn’t seen since they were inseparable as girls, nearly 30 years earlier. They reunite in Florence and their friendship continues where they left off, resulting in an unexpected attraction to one another that threatens to turn Sara’s already shaky world upside down.

Sara’s inner conflict and subsequent choices reveal an unpredictable yet dynamic future for all the characters. Seeking Sara Summers is an emotional and lyrical novel, a timeless story about love, commitment and transformation.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com - Elizabeth Gunn
Seeking Sara Summers is an insightful look into a life many of us have experienced on some level. The author's ability to portray the characters with depth and humor paints a beautiful picture of our inherent desire for a more authentic life. For anyone who has experienced an illness or event that has redefined how they view the world and their place in it, this book will be a personal affirmation that life must now be lived on your own terms.
Amazon.com - Bret Elliott
A wonderful and dynamic story of a woman's search for a "truer" life. There is lots of powerful imagery, difficult soul-searching, and surprising choices as Sara realizes the depth of her feelings for her friend Julia. I recommend this book to anyone who appreciates novels about love and about being true to oneself. Just so you know, I am a married man and the father of two incredible daughters. I hope they will have the courage to live life as fully as the characters in this book.

This is the first time I've read any thing by Susan Gabriel, and I must say it was a wonderful surprise. I look forward to reading more by this auther.

Sara has spent her life in the same small town—she teaches at the high school she attended as a student—but inspired by the scare of breast cancer, she’s decided to take a sabbatical and to travel to Italy to visit Julia who she has not seen in thirty years.....Gabriel renders Sara’s growing attraction and conflict with insight. There is a real sense of what is at stake for all three of these characters: Sara, Julia and Grady. A beautiful and powerful story.

    Refreshingly Sweet!

    It's nice to read a book with no hidden meaning and where loves winds over duty. A quick simple read that you will enjoy.
