4-Star Literary Fiction
To discover love is the greatest adventure.
During the 1960’s the island of Sardinia provided an exotic setting for Arthur Fraser in both business and pleasure.
Arthur, by trade, is a travel representative from England and has the good fortune of working the summer at this quiet, undeveloped tourist hotspot. Sardinia, off the coast of Italy, has charm and romance around every corner. Many come to soak up the sun, experience the relaxed lifestyle and absorb the culture but leave with much more. The island has also cast its spell on Arthur as he, with all his youthful vigor, is determined to find love or the idea of it.
Arthur soon develops a small circle of friends while pursuing the young ladies during his summer stay. These friends help him understand the customs and traditions of Sardinia while others remind him of home. It is not long before he is smitten by one particular Sardinian girl and finds himself going to the ends of the earth to win her heart. Unfortunately for our young Author, he has a lopsided competition for the girl’s love with one of his closest friends.
Love is, indeed, in the air for Arthur but not where he expects it to be. In his youthful exuberance he misses the signs of attraction and love that can be discovered only with age and experience. Will Arthur win the heart of the girl he loves or learn a very important lesson of life?
From the first word, A. Colin Wright’s love for Italy takes center stage. Instantly, you find yourself walking the streets of Sardinia with Arthur. You feel the sand between your toes as they relax at the beach. With each passing page, it is virtually impossible not to identify with Arthur as he confronts his torrent of emotions and desires in a setting rich with culture and beauty.
“Sardinian Silver” delivers the multiple levels of emotional development experienced by men in their youth. Wright has skillfully developed an exquisite group of settings in which the story unfolds. If you enjoy youthful romance surrounded by an exotic setting then “Sardinian Silver” is a must have.
