One of my favorite cyber friends is launching a new book. And lucky me—I’ve had a chance to read it already. And fall in love with it.

Nona Mae King’s Searching for Sara, is a historical romance about a young woman, overcoming grief and hardship to set upon a new life in a new country. Outwardly, Sara Little is timid and weak. But inwardly she is strong because she relies on God who has brought her through her trials and blessed her in the process.

When Sara meets the grieving widower, Christopher Lake and his 5-year old daughter, her strength is again tested as she tries to help him face and then move through his pain with God’s help and a mutual love of art.

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. I loved the characters’ simple breath prayers and their example of looking to God at any moment of the day, reminding us that—whatever our prayers—God can handle them.

Searching for Sarais a lovely and memorable read. It’s also the first in Ms. King’s latest series, Heart of the Blessed. At the front of the book, King has quoted the Beatitudes—Jesus’ blessings given during his Sermon on the Mount. In this first book in the series, King addresses Jesus’ blessings of the meek and those who mourn. I’m looking forward to seeing how she addresses each of the blessings in turn.

Lucky for us, King’s book has been launched just in time for Christmas. If you’re a little behind in your shopping, the book is available, not only in paperback, but also downloadable as an ebook in a variety of formats. Click on a links below and—voila—it’s a "Merry Christmas" for all your friends.
