The BookViral Review:
In Last Exit To Montauk Vega gave us a dazzling story of first love that danced through the sights and sounds of Long Island in the 1980s. Establishing himself as an author not given to serving up the archetypal romance. And in Searching for Sarah he once again gives us a read that is both incredibly moving and wholly original.
He understands that the best romance novels pivot not only on authentic dialogue but the silent musings that occupy the minds of their characters and by keeping thoughts unspoken, by allowing a narrative to show instead of having words telling, much greater depth and sensory details can be achieved. Allowing readers to “be in the room” with the characters.
Searching for Sarah is not simply a novel about love and not about sex, though both have their place. It’s about an idea. About ingrained prejudices, missed opportunities and events beyond our control. It’s about not letting life slip through our fingers. About seizing the moment and all the scenes between Nina and Sarah, Tom and Gabi instinctively find the right notes and shadings.
The framing mechanism involving Nina’s journals is perfectly pitched allowing Vega to unfalteringly capture the emotional tone of past events. And it’s here that the real magic happens. Weaving a spell that is based on that particular knowledge of love and self that only comes with our older years.
A superb release from Vega, Searching For Sarah proves wholly enthralling and without question will attract many new fans to Vega’s inspired novels. It is unreservedly recommended and a BookViral five star read.
