Great book for the relationship-impaired. I saw myself, years ago, navigating the same rough waters of finding “Mr. Right”, and wish I could have read the book then! It would have given me courage, not to mention some very sound guidance. I might have found him sooner!
Ava is someone who could be a best friend. Her innocence and vulnerability, set against the backdrop of Manhattan at its best and worst, left me alternately scared, saddened, and laughing out loud. Ava deserves to make it, and does, and we cheer and know there is hope out there. I want to see this movie, (which better get made), after I read the book again. And what about a sequel, Sara? Hope its in the works!
Many women couldn’t walk away from a man with as much going for him as her fiancé for fear of never finding someone else, let alone never recovering financially. So from the outset, I admired Ava’s courage. There were times when I wanted to knock her up the side of the head for subsequent choices, as realistic as they were for a young woman struggling to find her way. The characters are fun and there are great twists.
I was right with Ava through the whole story, always hoping along with her that she would find what she’s looking for. With her impulsive and unwise choices, I sometimes wanted to give her a good talking-to. Would the handsome, mysterious NYC undercover cop bring her true love? Or maybe it would be in pursuing her dream, dancing. Possibly the kind, insightful homeless young man would help her know the love she seeks.
I enjoyed Sarah’s writing, although there were a few scenes that I felt pushed the envelope in the Christian Fiction genre. This isn’t a ‘preachy’ Christian book, but Ava and other characters do have a relationship with God, and we see Him through her journey. I liked getting to know each character, and by the end I felt like I knew Ava, very well.I loved the ending, and I hope to read more by Sara Goff.
The writing flows, carrying the action forward effortlessly. Dialogue is handled extremely well and there are no boring scenes. I couldn't put it down.
This is Sara Goff’s first novel and, judging by the excellence of her writing, it won’t be her last.
