There is something oddly comforting about immersing yourself in a novel whose characters you are already familiar with, and although several months had passed since reading its predecessor, I immediately felt drawn back into the story. As well as telling us what happens next, “After Sara’s Year” digs deep into the lives of some of the minor characters from the previous book: Mac, Erik and Sadie. I found Sadie’s story the most engrossing and from that point onwards I could not stop reading. Without giving away any spoilers, I think the point the author is making is that, there is always a story. Although we don’t have to like somebody, there is always a story - there are always reasons why he or she became that person. And this is something that applies to fiction as much as real life: suspend your judgement and you might understand. Keep reading and you will be surprised.
‘After Sara’s Year’ is another superb, page-turning read, which weaves the varied strands of Jewish culture - its strict morals but also its warmth and unique humour - into a beautiful, complex, sophisticated tapestry. Without a doubt, this series is set to become a new classic of Jewish literature.
One could understandably cite Gerson's delicately drawn and richly nuanced characters, the complicated pathos of their relationships or the intricate but never tiresome details of the protagonist's family's Jewish heritage and values and language.
But what resonates even more than these strengths is the author's undeniable affection for and attachment to his characters--all of whom are present in some sense from the original novel, "Sara's Year." In this book, it is especially apparent in his unerringly compassionate attention to the unlikely protagonist, Sadie Finkel, who Gerson manages to make simultaneously off-putting and compelling . . . unsettling and sympathetic . . . and ultimately, endearing.
If you can make it to the very end of this tenderly aching read without a sigh or a tear, you're a more stoic soul than I. If after the end, you are not eagerly awaiting the next of Sara's Stories, then we must not have read the same book.
Author, The Rest of Our LIves and Ice on Fire: The Test of Our Lives
In After Sara’s Year, Gerson takes us deeper into the exploration of Sadie and her past revealing shocking events that shaped the hard-nosed brow-beater we met in Sara’s year. We all know someone like her but wouldn’t dare get close enough to hear about the deeply rooted past hurts and traumas that ultimately formed the rage brewing inside…. perhaps sometimes inside each of us.
Are you ready to face those aspects of you that hold onto to the past… stories that live on, perhaps of victimhood that keep others and the world separate? Be ready! Sometimes your worst enemies are your greatest teachers! And who could be more qualified to teach loving kindness than a wicked witch of an Aunt?
The question is: Will her rage lead her to destroy her nephew Bernie’s first art exhibition? Or will there be a straw that breaks this camel’s back?
Whatever happens, this book is undoubtedly another masterpiece in Gerson’s literary exhibition!!! Thank you! I can’t wait for the next one!
