What they say: We join Natalie on her mission to find true love and harmony. She allows us to read her diaries as she tells how her life unfolds, giving a unique insight into her enjoyable but mostly unfulfilling encounters with men – and all that life throws at her. Will she find what she’s looking for?
Natalie holds many things dear: family, friends, Italy, parties, Tarot, and God. But what she wants most is a lasting, meaningful, loving relationship. Despite her difficulty in finding “the one” she does get to know herself better, and lets us watch and learn from her experiences. She asks many questions of herself, and encourages us to do the same, helping us realise that we all take similar journeys of self-discovery – and that this is normal and necessary.
“Each relationship we have changes us in some way and some have the power to change us forever…”
What we say: “Full Circle chronicles Natalie’s journey from teenager to adulthood through her diary entries. It’s an honest account of the ups and downs of her life as she tries to find fulfilment in her work, her place in the world and her pursuit of Mr Right.
It’s an easy read, with the diary entry style allowing you to dip in and out. More self reflecting and less humorous than Bridget Jones but perhaps a more true account of the life of a young woman living in London. At times it’s frustrating as you want to shake her for continuously letting her unsuccessful relationships define her. However we can all relate to those feelings of insecurities and anxieties as a teenager and in our 20s.
Overall an enjoyable read, interspersed with thought provoking quotes. I look forward to reading more from this author.”
Full Circle by Natalie Savvides is available from many good bookstores and online from Amazon.
