FootNotes: Discovering God in the Fine Print is a raw and revealing spiritual memoir. Adrift in a glamorous, affluent life in Los Angeles that was spiraling out of control, Sara’s reality abruptly shifts to an unfamiliar plane when her mother is diagnosed with terminal cancer. The events of the next twelve months shake her foundations, as she struggles to make sense of her mother’s illness and death, her father’s unexpected stroke and subsequent death, and a difficult divorce from her husband of ten years. Sara desperately searches for meaning and purpose in life, embarking on an Eat, Pray, Love type of quest through Europe, exploring eastern religion, and making a pilgrimage to Israel. Rediscovering God through the lens of relationship, rather than religion, Sara explores the lessons she has learned about life, overcoming tragedy, hurt and loss, and getting to know a loving, real and non-religious God. FootNotes will be available for download in January 2018. Email me to receive notification when the book is available for download.
