"Sara, a Canadian Saga," by Audrey Austin


I wanted to let you know that I've self-published my first novel: Sara, a Canadian Saga. The story begins in 1916 and tells the story of Sara and Roy from the time they are children to Roy's death in the 1950s. The reader follows them through their adolescence, courtship, and marriage, but focuses especially on the years of the Great Depression.

I self-published with great assistance from Maggie Lacroix, of Wynterblue Publishing Canada. I'm overjoyed to report that it’s into its third printing.

Here is some feedback from readers:

"Your book brought memories of actual places and people to me. I was a child growing up on Prince Edward Island in the dirty thirties." K. Austin

"I've read your book already and loved the story. It reminded me of the stories my parents and grandparents used to relate about the 20s and 30s.” Judy Donovan-McDonald.

"I received Sara on Tuesday and couldn’t wait to read it. I couldn't put it down. I really enjoyed the story especially the streets in Toronto. It brought back a lot of memories. It is good for the soul to remember the past. Could that be why we call them the good old days? Looking forward to a sequel. Maureen Jones-Motchan.

"I truly enjoyed reading Sara. At times I laughed and at other times I felt tears welling up. It was such a good story, well written and I loved it." Eleanor Lambert.

This is just a taste of the amazing feedback I have received from some of my readers. Copies are $20 and to purchase yours, just email me at:

I will deliver your copy to you if you live here in Elliot Lake. Otherwise your book will be in the mail the same day I receive your payment.

Thanks in advance.
