St. Charles at Dusk was a quarter-finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest in 2014. 

Set amidst the lush and vibrant backdrop of New Orleans, this is the story of Oz and Adrienne. Of forbidden love, and startling heartbreak.

A father’s threats. A tragic accident. Unanswered questions. Oz Sullivan has finally moved past the tangled web surrounding his brief, but intense, relationship with the young, impetuous Adrienne Deschanel. Through his family, and successful career as an attorney, he has forged a tranquil predictability.

Then Adrienne unexpectedly emerges, with no memory of the life she once led. Her desperate attempt to flee the confusing and dark influences in the bayou instinctively propels her to the one face for which she has a name. Oz’s world is once again turned upside down, as he must decide how to help her without losing himself entirely.

Set amidst the lush and vibrant backdrop of New Orleans, St. Charles at Dusk tells the story of Oz and Adrienne; of forbidden love, and startling heartbreak.


“Sarah writes with a passion about New Orleans that reminds me of a young Anne Rice in her novel A Feast of All Saints…with a Dickensian finesse, Sarah finely weaves together a tale of romance between Oz and Adrienne… I highly recommend it.”– Becket, bestselling author and assistant to anne rice

“A fantastically convoluted and multi-layered story rich in thought and design. The novel is suspenseful and holds its anagnorisis til the very end. The Sullivans, the Deschanels, and even the Fontaines easily become real, believable, and traditional Southern families in a novel you will long remember.”— Red Clay & Roses

“St. Charles at Dusk is a hauntingly beautiful tale, one that will linger in your heart long after you finish the last page. This is by far one of the best books that I’ve read this year and I cannot wait to read the sequel in this amazing series!”– Kristy Feltenberger Gillespie
