SARA, a Canadian Saga -- my first novel

Sara, a Canadian Saga

Author:  Audrey Austin

ABOUT SARA, a Canadian Saga

The time is 1916. Sara is a 10 year old girl in rural Prince Edward Island. Roy is a 10 year old boy in mining town, Nova Scotia.

Through their eyes we see, feel and experience their childhood challenges. We follow them through adolescence and their turbulent teen years.

We celebrate their courtship and suffer their lost innocence in the marriage ritual. They take us through the Great Depression and share with us the frustrations, dreams and challenges they face in adulthood.

As parents they introduce us to their children.

This story appeals to all ages because Sara and Roy hold up a mirror and ask the reader to recognize truth about the human condition for many Canadian families through difficult economic times.

We witness love that does not come neatly wrapped and experience the quiet, sometimes desperate, drama of lives unfolding.

You will find SARA, the Kindle book on http://amazon.com or in paperback format from the author.
