Searching for Armando examines three real lives and how they intersected, including what came before that intersection and what came after. One reviewer called the book "a remarkable creation, encompassing a dazzling range of genres: memoir, biography, cultural history, mystery, and detective story."

In 1945, a young wife awaits the return of her high school sweetheart from the battlefields of World War II. When he arrives, she will face him with the severest test of their marriage. Because in his years-long absence, she has fallen in love with another man. This classic situation takes on its own particular trappings, some of them quite surprising, and the decision of the young couple reverberates through their decades together and through the lives of their children, especially the first-born, who is the author of Searching for Armando.

About the Author

Noëlle Sickels is the author of four historical novels. In WALKING WEST, a cross-country wagon journey in 1852 is viewed through the eyes of the women emigrants. In THE SHOPKEEPER’S WIFE, a restless wife and her maid are caught up in a murder trial in 1886 Philadelphia. In THE MEDIUM, a young woman on the World War II home front struggles with her troublesome psychic abilities. And in OUT OF LOVE, in 1984, two high school sweethearts reunite to search for the son they were forced to relinquish for adoption 18 years earlier. In all these books, characters wrestle with being true to themselves while engaging in complicated relationships with friends, families, and lovers and responding to the demands of their time in history and their time of life.

Sickels has also published the memoir SEARCHING FOR ARMANDO, which is a triple biography of her mother and her two fathers. And each month she posts a new story and a new poem on her web site, A native of New Jersey, she is a retired teacher living in Los Angeles with her husband and an overweight cat, and two grandchildren not far away who also love stories.
