About the Book
“‘Finding Sam’ is a fairytale for grown ups. Sam, the lead character, is fresh from a wicked divorce and a lifetime of poison apples. The Sam of old and the Sam she longs to be are in a constant battle of wills and its bitterness leaves her with lingering doubts and mistrust. Of course, no fairytale is complete without a Prince Charming. Hers arrives in the form of Erik. He is mostly honest and mostly kind but unfortunately, this truth does not set her free. She resists the burgeoning relationship in the same way a woman used to being denied all she deserves and desires does. Throughout you’ll find yourself rooting for this damsel and will quickly come to the realization she must be her own hero and rescue herself, because who doesn’t want a happily ever? Or as happy as possible for as long as possible.” -Vandi, Review “Finding Sam isn’t a lighthearted read. Sam has been through serious neglect and abuse from most of the people she should be able to trust, and she’d still struggling with a dangerous ex. There have been people in her life that helped her turn it around, but she’s lost them. The story is written in Sam’s point of view, and to me one of the most chilling parts of the story is the matter-of-fact way she relates the horrible things she has suffered, as though they were nothing extraordinary.” -AK, Review When Sam meets Erik, she’s instantly attracted, and just as instantly afraid. This contradiction continues throughout their relationship, moving to deeper and deeper levels, but she fights it all the way. Sam drew me in and made me care, enough that I wanted to slap her silly sometimes, but she earns everything she gains. A deeply emotional experience. “A heartfelt gritty non-apologetic story about a woman finding who she is after a lifetime of being knocked down. While the story brushes over rape and drug abuse it’s not embedded into the story. It’s there to acct for the way Sam feels, reacts and lives. I devoured the novel reading it straight thru about 4 hours or so… During the story I cried, got mad on Sam’s behalf and got frustrated with Erik and his secrets. Although without the secrets on both sides and everything else that happens in the book it wouldn’t be a story that I’ll keep on the reader to pull out to read again.” -Jude, Review “So often, I come across novels that I really do not love, and then when I find one I do love—my world just stops! Kids are ignored, dinners are not made and housework becomes a thing of the past! ‘Finding Sam’ was one of those books—I was glued to this story until the very last page. This book follows single mother Sam Martin as she tries to pick up the pieces after an ugly divorce. Sam is imperfect and flawed, but so realistic and likable. Her past is complicated, as was her marriage, and you see her struggle with making sense of it all. She seems to feel broken and resistant to love, but then she meets HIM and her world turns upside down. I don’t think Sam expected to find love again, which made her experience that much more fun for me! I found myself encouraging her out loud to “go for it”, but Sam is stubborn and afraid of being hurt again. I really loved ‘Finding Sam’. I loved the story and I loved the characters. This very talented author took my emotions on a roller coaster ride and I was left wanting more!” -D. St. John, Review
