"Whenever I come to the end of a good book, I find myself feeling sad that this pleasure is almost over. This is one of these books... I know I shall read it again in the very near future." A. Mokhtarzadeh (Amazon reader)

Jacob Sebastiani's above reflections might be thought of as the guiding principle which characterizes Nancy Young's premier novel, Strum, a non-chronological, spiritual exploration of self-discovery, desire, and unconquerable love. Love between individuals, and love for the unplanned life. In an intricate cross-cultural tale about a multi-generational, partly accidental family, Young creates warm, compassionate, believable, and ultimately human characters that seek self-understanding and love by transcending their usual personal and geographical boundaries in hopes of finding something fulfilling and true in themselves. Each fascinating character discovers along the path the inevitable hardships of passionate love, cultural boundaries, surprise, slighted expectations, and heartbreak, before experiencing some sort of eventual redemption. Imbued with the spirituality of the greatest international language, music, Young demonstrates her deep awareness of the challenges and beauty of international living. Strum gives us a glimpse into a very personal American-European-Asian universe that reads like biography, historical fiction, romance, fairy tale, ghost-story, travel-guide, music appreciation text, and prayer all at once. It acclaims the inter-connectivity of everything, living and material, that weaves the tapestry of a life well-lived. It is an audacious and marvelous first novel and I look forward to Ms. Young's future work.
