Scotland has the Lock Ness Monster and Bear Lake Valley has theirs. Do they really exist? Sarah’s Special Gift focuses on deep-rooted legends, a few mysterious events, and a tender love story.
Sarah is a beautiful and successful dance teacher. She is deaf, but this does not stop her from living life to its fullest. While visiting the Roberts family, David finds himself entranced with this very special lady and ends up defending her honor several times. He finds that Sarah has gone through many trials as she teaches him the importance of not dwelling on the past and how to love life. Meanwhile, David learns about the legend of the Bear Lake Monster and wonders why the community believes in such a thing. He is determined to prove there is no Bear Lake Monster.
“The romantic friction between David and Sarah is central to a story that will have you cheering for them to get together!” wrote Allison King from Allison’s Attic. “The fun part is wondering if there is truly a monster in the lake. It makes for an interesting adventure, with a surprise ending to the ‘tale’ of the monster. I love that the author based the monster on a local folklore in Idaho. This is a heart-warming story of finding that right person to live the rest of your life with. It teaches us that people with disabilities are just like any other person who has dreams for their life. So, if you want to laugh, learn and live in the life of some wonderful characters….read this book and enjoy the journey!!!”
After a few teases, tricks, and mischievous deeds, David begins to overcome his troubles. As time passes, he realizes he must now face the dilemma of choosing between his career and matters of the heart.
“This romance will keep readers entertained right up to the last page,” wrote Kim Atchue-Cusella of Book Loons. “Linda Weaver Clarke creates another winner with this installment of her Family Saga in Bear Lake Valley series.”
Midwest Book Review wrote: “Sometimes when realizing one’s roots, one goes through the process in the strangest of ways. David has returned after a long absence, and it seems that he can find love in this small hometown. But love is never easy, and David must overcome many obstacles to finally claim his beloved. This is another fine entry into Clarke’s work, highly recommended.”
