Hungry for Love follows Elizabeth, a dentist in her late thirties, who is coping with the unimaginable – her husband is in a coma, and there is little hope for recovery. Added to that, she’s dealing with a lot of other baggage: unresolved grief over her mother’s death, mixed feelings towards her stepmother, a job she hates, and a disapproving father.
As Elizabeth battles against her dissatisfaction and comes to terms with the fact that her husband may never recover, she’s hit with the unexpected. She meets – and falls in love with – another man. As she finally opens up to him and allows herself to be happy again, life takes yet another turn. Her husband wakes up from the coma, and everything is immediately thrown into chaos. She feels torn between two men she loves deeply – but does she really have to choose between them? Would it be at all possible to have both? Can Elizabeth have her cookie and eat it too, without her world falling apart in the process?
“Hungry for Love explores all different types of love,” Sacher says. “Love is never black or white, and is often full of irony. But if you follow your heart, you will make out OK in the end.”
Around the launch of Hungry for Love, Sacher is available for interviews, during which she can discuss:
· Her definition of what a “modern day relationship” can look like today
· How to follow your heart instead of just meeting the expectations of others
· Unpacking society’s definition of “normal,” and how to move past that to be your authentic self
· Fighting against fear and chasing after what you really want
“No matter how hard people try, love can’t be bound by social norms,” states Sacher. “People love who they love. What is important is that you stay true to yourself, and face life without fear.”
MAYA SACHER is a writer, a law school graduate, and a passionate activist.

When she isn’t busy writing, she enjoys traveling, watching movies, and of course getting lost in a good book.
