About the Book

Sara Little has an intimate knowledge of fear, faith her only source of comfort. Then God calls her to put aside her past to pursue a life beyond servitude for the English aristocracy. A life in America.

Christopher Lake exists in a daily void of agony and grief, stripped of his wife, their unborn son, and his passion for art. All that remains to tempt him from grief is that of his five-year-old daughter. But after almost two years of wallowing in sorrow and rage, even that is spent.

Searching for Sara is the story of how these two people faced their daily tortures of fear and grief to find healing and happiness.

What Others Are Saying:

King paints a full-bodied story, rich in imagery, emotion, and spiritual healing. Her prose spills out effortlessly as she introduces us to characters who are multifaceted and easy to love. Historical readers will embrace her fresh voice. I particularly appreciated the realistic relationships between friends and siblings.” ~Ann Lee Miller, author of Kicking EternityThe Art of My Life, and Avra’s God

Searching for Sara is a sweet romance whose characters will linger with you long after the last page. With an emphasis on both overcoming grief and conquering self-doubt, the story not only is a touching romance, but a message about moving on and letting the past rest but appreciating how it has changed you. King is an excellent writer with a knack for penning likable, relatable characters.” ~Lynnette Bonnerauthor of Rocky Mountain OasisHigh Desert Haven, and Fair Valley Refuge (The Shepherd’s Heart series)

King uses faith, prayer and artistic growth to masterfully create a story that is both memorable and stirring. King had me in tears a half dozen times as she let me experience what both Sara and Christopher were going through.” ~Carol Peterson, author of teachers’ resource books Fun with FinanceJump Into Science, and Jump Back In Time.

This book is its own little piece of heaven. Sara Little was a servant in England and has been taken under the wing of a benefactor in America. She learns who she is and finds her place in the world. Being “little” has nothing to do with the heart of this girl….and with her meek spirit, she shines the light of the Lord to help heal broken hearts and mend families. I highly recommend it.” ~Laura J. Marshall, author of  Persistent Love

Searching for Sara is a story of poverty and humility, a story of hope from a beginning of hopelessness, and a surprising story of love. The way [King] deals with grief and the aftermath of tragedy impressed me.  Having read some other books by [her], I was really looking forward to reading Searching For Sara, and King did not disappoint.” ~Bethany Jean, poet, author, and reviewer for Readers’ Realm online magazine.

King weaves art in many forms throughout this story, from charcoal and watercolors to tatting and crocheting to old pictures from childhood.  The resulting kaleidoscope is largely pleasing to the reader’s eye.” ~Kim Ford, reviewer for The Wordsmith Journal Magazine.
