Finding Sara

by Nancy DeMarco 

Sara Morgan sees herself as an outcast with no hope of a normal life. Her best friend is her horse, and her only dream is to ride at Rolex, the most prestigious equestrian event in the USA. Reaching her goal would be difficult enough if she were normal, but twenty-three-year-old Sara is anything but. She’s been in a mental hospital, she hears voices in her head, and she has no memory of hitting her abusive ex-husband with a truck. Under the watchful eyes of her father, now her legal guardian, Sara tries to build a life of her own.

Enter Paul, a software engineer who collects yogurt cups and plastic bags. Short, bald, and a bit of a nerd, he’s never had a girlfriend, and he falls for Sara in a big way. Together, he and Sara sort out the awkward, confusing, and often amusing trials of new love.

In this funny and frightening story of courage and hope, Sara walks a dangerous path. Unaware that an awful secret hides in her dreams, she just might be a danger to herself and others. Her life is a lie, and not everyone is on her side.

Raised in rural New England, Nancy DeMarco doesn't mind swimming with bloodsuckers, drinking from snow melt, and outrunning deer flies. Like her characters, she has spent most of her life in the woods of New Hampshire, hiking the trails and riding horses. Climbing trees is still a favorite pastime.

When DeMarco was struck with Lyme disease, she found herself barely able to complete a sentence. Her writing began as therapy and quickly grew to a passion. Today she tries to infuse her work with a sense of small-town community, along with plenty of laughter and, most of all, a sense of finding one's strength, overcoming odds, and following dreams.

Saving Gracie, DeMarco's second book, is the Kindle Book Review's 2014 Mystery/Thriller Winner!
