Reader Reviews of Searching for Persephone
"The ease with which the story is written is exemplary. It keeps one captivated with its variety and emotional effect on the reader....the themes of immigration and co-mingling of cultures in families, as well as overcoming Covid, were well thought out and documented. The characters, language, actions and writing style keep you reading...A highly recommended read. As an immigrant, there were places within the novel that made me cry, as I was able to connect with all of the characters' emotional dichotomies."

"I can't put down Searching for Persephone. I'm staying in and hating to stop reading. The bottom line--WOW! S.M. Perkins Carr is a great writer and is surely at the start of a brilliant career as an author. I want to thank her for writing and I can't wait for her second book!"
--Christine, self-proclaimed book snob, fan of authors Colleen Hoover and Jodi Picoult
"The characters are compelling and the descriptions of the scenery are amazing! A great book from a first-time author! Can't wait for her next one."
--Karen, fan of authors Fannie Flagg and Sue Monk Kidd
"What a beautiful love story. With the male gender being so pummelled in popular culture these days, it is of particular interest to me that the young man in this story is persevering, independent and caring. Dimitri takes some wrong turns, is plagued with shame, and then digs himself in deeper yet. But rather than being slandered and disparaged by all for this, he is gently supported and the love story entwines with his story. Well done and Bravo!!"
