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
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.
