Believers in Love

Alan Clay


Beautifully written -- Very highly recommended

The ordinary confines of living leave Sax feeling distant from the world around him. So he takes up his saxophone and happens upon a pavement artist. Sax accompanies Zoe's artist endeavors by playing his saxophone for which they agree to split the hat, allowing "the notes of my instrument to flow out over her colors, and mingle with the feet of the passers by." Such a poetic beginning results in a profound yet gentle love story.

When he picks his daughter Sarah up from school, Sax suggests a new game where "we don't do anything that we normally do." So Sax and Sarah build sandcastles upon the beach, which leads to an invitation to go to Auckland to a festival to create sand sculpture. Firefly, Sarah's angle, accompanies them everywhere.

The event organizer Adam looses his job despite the success of the festival. He becomes Zoe and Sax's manager when they and Sarah are invited to build another sandcastle in New Zealand. Conflict develops as Zoe and Sax grow closer together, and as politics influence their creative efforts.

Australian novelist Author Alan Clay breaks the mold of traditional romance to make it an art of creation in BELIEVERS IN LOVE. The light tone of the narrative belies the profound observations of life, art and love. Delightful anecdotes interspersed amid the narrative voices keep the pace moving even as the shifting point of views that become a voyage of discovery. BELIEVERS IN LOVE is a powerfully creative work with prose that sings like poetry, in addition to philosophical observations that may be picked up like shells upon the seashore. Beautifully told and evocatively rendered, BELIEVERS IN LOVE comes very highly recommended.                     www.wordweaving.com
