Never Give Up "Searching for Love"For those of us who have lost a ring at the beach—and it's not such an unlikely experience—Tiffany's loss of her engagement ring surely rings a bell. The tone and mood is set from the beginning. Author Sheryl McGinnis has mastered the art of scene description, without being flowery and sentimental.
It's unclear from the beginning whether the title, Searching for Love, is a metaphor for the ring or the real thing—and that's the mystery that seduces you—not telling too much and leaving just enough to the imagination. It's a real beach scene and you are unmistakably there.
In a time of great uncertainty in modern civilization and constantly changing mores like the tides, this story shows that good old fashioned romance is still in vogue and that, despite changing roles of men and women in society, that they are still attracted to, and attractive to, the opposite sex—a reassuring sign for the propagation of the species—at the very least!
But, as life has it, people are subject to whims and complex behavior patterns and underlying motivations that often reflect unspoken needs in childhood. Tiffany happens upon a regrettable scene from afar… she sees her beloved Cale in a romantic embrace with another woman.
Will she confront him about it? Will he confess and beg forgiveness? Will she forgive him and let bygones be bygones? Or will he glibly dismiss the discretion and deny any responsibility for his actions? Will hope die a slow death? Those are the tests of true love, older than sand and sea--and the author skillfully captures this longing of the heart as she weaves a tale of Tiffany and Cale in our times in Searching for Love.
Any woman who has felt the sting of rejection or suffered unrequited love from the opposite sex and knows the wonder of a new day dawning when she meet someone all over again, will surely identify with the novel's redemption of love.
Searching for Love is a fabulously easy read and cure for a young girl's broken heart. What better way to get the endorphins running, than from a feel-good romance? [by Gloria Schramm]
