Sara Summers Stanton has raised three children and works as a high school teacher at the same school she attended growing up. Her 25-year marriage is showing cracks in the facade and now she's dealing with breast cancer. In a rare moment of taking care of herself instead of everyone else, Sara takes a sabbatical and goes on the trip to Italy she has always dreamed of taking. This search for a more authentic life leads to Julia, a friend she hasn't seen since they were inseparable as girls, nearly 30 years earlier.
They reunite in Florence and their friendship continues where they left off, resulting in an unexpected attraction to each other that threatens to turn Sara's already shaky world upside down. What do you do if you fall in love with your best friend? Sara's inner conflict and subsequent choices reveal an unpredictable yet dynamic future for all the characters. Seeking Sara Summers is an emotional and lyrical novel, a timeless story about love, commitment, and transformation.

A classy love story with wonderful Italian setting

I’ve read (or listened to) plenty of fiction in my life, everything from junky beach books to classic literature. I loved this audiobook. Gabriel is a clever, funny, profound writer who quickly takes you into the inner world of her characters, while taking you on an external journey that kept me listening. Sara’s character comes across very clearly and her transformation is inspiring. Big life changes in middle age are rarely easy and the author treats the challenges intelligently. A really satisfying story. And I enjoyed the narration a lot!

Totally Captivating

This story had me in its grips from beginning to end. I was not sure how such conflict could be resolved, but the plot was woven into a beautiful conclusion. Gabriel is a masterful writer.
