Description

“The summer before I turned ten was idyllic—until August 3, 1970.  It perfectly describes a time when I thought the world was safe and good things lasted forever..."

Christy Award Winner!

Nine-year-old Abby McAndrews has just experienced her greatest loss, and in its wake, her family is unraveling with guilt, grief, and anger. Her father, Reverend McAndrews, cannot return to the pulpit because he has more questions than answers. Her older brother Matt’s actions speak louder than the words he needs to confess, as he acts out in dangerous ways. Her mother tries to hold her grieving family together, but when Abby’s dad refuses to move on, the family is at a crossroads.
 
Stars in the Grass, set in a small Midwestern town in 1970, is an uplifting novel that explores a family’s relationships and resiliency. Abby’s heartbreaking remembrances are balanced by humor and nostalgia as her family struggles with—and ultimately celebrates—life after loss.

    Stars in the Grass

    Published by Christena on Dec 19th 2019

    I was drawn into this story from page one and I didn’t want to put it down till I finished it. The writer is able to make me feel a part of the story, like I am one of the parishioners or neighbors. The story is extremely sad at times and I wanted to reach out and comfort the character in pain. I believe I felt their pain more deeply because I have lost a family member in an accident. I really like the way the writer shows each person dealing with grief in their own way. Some may not be healthy ways of dealing but the characters must decide that for themselves; the writer does not make that judgement.
    I recommend this book to everyone who likes to read stories about events that could be real. While this is a novel I’m sure many families have been dealt with similar circumstances. At times the story is extremely sad and brought tears to my eyes and at other times it is heartwarming.
