The Great Search: One Woman’s Search for the One

The search for love is a story to which everyone can relate. After a divorce left her looking for a new life and love, author Abbey Algiers discovered that the secret to finding happiness and love was to pursue the things in life that make her happy, instead of seeking that happiness in another person. With its encouraging message, Algiers’ first book, The Great Search, reminds readers to follow their life passions above all else.

“Every time I read this book, I get chills,” notes Rochelle Melander, author of Write-A-Thon: Write Your Book in 26 Days (and Live to Tell About It). “[It] reminds readers to search for what’s essential and dependable. This is the perfect gift for the single women in your life.”

An avid marathoner and observer of life, Algiers created her inspirational blog ImRunnerChica.com in 2007 and has been featured in Runner’s World Online and the magazine This Mother Can Run. She is currently finishing her first novel, Living Backwards: a Story of One Woman’s Journey of Self-discovery after Divorce.

The Great Search is available at local independent bookstores, online at HenschelHausBooks.com and Amazon.com, where a Kindle edition is also available.


Cost: $16.95. For more information, call 414-559-3282, email AbbeyAlgiersPR@gmail.com visit AbigailAlgiers.com.
