Everyone is looking for something: something from the past that they’ve lost and wish to regain; something they’ve never had but desire for the future; a place to call home; a place in the universe; and, of course, love. That is the theme that runs through Dvora Waysman’s latest novel, Searching for Sarah.

Short and sweet, the book, Waysman’s 14th published story, is more a novella than a full-length novel, yet she manages to craft credible characters and to develop a decent plot within its pages.
