A gripping and poignant love story about a privileged young woman's personal awakening as she experiences the devastations of World War II in a Scottish Highlands village.
Sara is a Canadian-born dual citizen (Canadian and American) who moved to the States in 1999 for a technical writing job. When she was laid off two years later, instead of looking for another job, she decided to take a gamble on writing fiction full-time. Sara' third novel, Water for Elephants, became a best-seller around the world and was released to critical and box office acclaim as a major motion film starring Robert Pattinson, Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz. Her fourth novel, The Ape House, was published in 2010. Sara lives with her husband, three children, and many animals in North Carolina.
