Sarah is a lovely woman, although her lack of self belief is frustrating. The reasons for this are not immediately self evident but when they are revealed, you understand why she doubts herself. Sarah’s emotional past makes a simple romance unlikely, her children, although adult, still need her and are judgemental when she falls off the pedestal they’ve put her on. This coupled with the shadow of her past love, makes her new life complex and angst ridden right to the end.
Nick is not your typical vicar, or maybe he is? Nick blows away any preconceptions you have about country vicars. His flaws don’t dim his likeability and his attraction to and eventual love for Sarah makes him a keeper.
The village characters are vivid and recognisable. I especially liked Maggie, who is the archetypical fairy godmother, essential for romance to survive. The expert inquisitiveness, only found in small communities, punctuates Nutt Hill’s tranquillity. Some gossips are kindly but there are some with darker motives and these threaten Nick and Sarah’s happiness.
‘Finding Sarah’ is a delicious slice of village life, full of heartache, romance and the best and worst of human emotions. I’m looking forward to reading ‘Sun on Sunday’ and ‘Chances Are’, the next two books in the series.
Nick is a vicar who rides on a motorcycle. He's handsome and nobody has ever seen him with a woman, so he's the subject of a lot of gossip. He's well loved in the village and people often come to him for advice. Because of his work he doesn't date, but when he meets Sarah he can't help but breaking his own rules. His job as a vicar might be a big obstacle when it comes to having a relationship. Will Nick and Sarah have a chance at happiness together?
Finding Sarah is a heartwarming, charming and unusual love story. Sarah is insecure and doesn't know how amazing she is. Slowly she becomes stronger and more self-confident. She makes her decisions with her heart and I enjoyed reading about that aspect of her personality the most. Nick is a great man, but he also has a past and the result of that is that he sometimes acts before he thinks. He's a passionate man and the idea of a gorgeous broad-shouldered vicar on a motorcycle is fantastic. Even though he's bound to the church he doesn't constantly preach his faith. The story focuses more on the consequences of his job. I liked that angle very much.
Sarah and Nick are both wonderful people. I loved the way they are together and that made me fall in love with this story as soon as I started to read it. Wendy Lou Jones is a very good writer. She uses beautiful words and she creates a cozy and warm atmosphere with both the words she chooses and the way she uses them. The story has a lovely flow. I know from her other books that Wendy Lou Jones's stories always are surprising. In this book there's an unpredictable development as well. This unexpected turn of events fascinated me and I had no idea how the story would end. I couldn't put the book down until I knew. Everything in this novel is exactly as it should be and I enjoyed reading it very much. I highly recommend any of Wendy Lou Jones's books.
Wendy creates a lovely setting in Lower Nutton and it’s surrounding areas around Nutt Hill, you can imagine all the beautiful and picturesque scenery everywhere you look. The sense of community is captured well here, in both the welcoming kind like Maggie shows, and the way that if you’re from the outside, you can sometimes feel isolated from people who are set in their ways.
If the book hadn’t mentioned digital cameras, I wouldn’t have guessed it was based any later than 90’s. This is mainly because of Sarah, and her ways, which seem very traditional, and a few things when technology would have helped massively, a quick text can go a long way sometimes, even if you don’t want to type an essay.
Sarah is generally lovely. She lacks confidence after splitting from her husband, but thanks to her new found independence, and friendship with her employer Maggie, she begins to believe in herself again, and it was really heart warming to see this. However there seems to always be something to knock her down again in finding true happiness, and towards the end, it was more her own self and values that stopped her, and in my view I think they were quite old fashioned, I know she was almost 10 years older than me, so it might be an age thing (though late 39ish isn’t old by any means), but, while it was an issue that needed to be dealt, I don’t think it would stop me trying to be happy, and I would certainly confide. She was taking a step back in confidence, and it was heart-wrenching to see.
Nick was adorable most the time, well, no one is perfect, and it’s great to see that both characters were flawed, and to see the characters try to work it out. A while ago, I would have considered vicars to be very serious people, and a bit intimidating, as I don’t necessarily share the same beliefs, so worry they would frown upon me, but meeting some in real life outside of church, they really are just ‘normal people’, which sounds stupid, of course they are, but my previous perception was obviously very wrong, and I’m glad I learned otherwise. Wendy gets this across really well, you really feel like he takes his job seriously, but can have a laugh and be a great friend to anyone.
I absolutely adored Maggie, she had a great sense of humour, and I loved how friendly and welcoming she was to Sarah. I was less keen on Sarah's friend Louise at the start of the book, she seemed really quite negative. She may have been trying to think what was best for Sarah, of course she wouldn't want Sarah to get hurt, but it came across to me as slightly mean. Why shouldn't Sarah try to find happiness with another man, she's not even 40, and it's not as if the break-up with her ex-hubby happened last week, or was it remotely her fault! Yes, Sarah may have been naive in marrying her first husband, but she wasn't even 20 then, now she has age and experience on her side, so she can get a feel on whether Nick is any good before putting her heart fully on the line. Louise didn't seem to get this, as I said it was probably her thinking she knew best, and had good intentions, but she wasn't necessarily what I would class as being encouraging or supporting Sarah at the start of the book, just as she has a chance to find love again.
Overall this book is definitely one to check out, along with any sequels in the ‘Echoes of Nutt Hill’. It’s romantic and charming, it’s the perfect book to relax with on a nice sunday afternoon.
