New Book | The Two Lives of Sara

Updated: Mar 16, 2023

I decided to take a little break from my usual self-help and other heavy non-fiction books and picked up "The Two Lives of Sara" by Catherine Adel West. This fiction novel is based in the late 1960s and follows a young woman named Sara that decided to leave Chicago for Memphis. I'm only a few chapters in and her story is starting to unfold but it made me wonder why she decided to move to a southern state given that this takes place during the Black migration. Which leads me to think that she is leaving behind a pretty tragic past. Sara is adjusting to her new life in a boarding house and as a new mom - both seem to be a struggle for her. I'm very curious to know more about her past...
