The Grounded by Angela Correll

Annie loses her stewardess job when her airline is bought out.   This sends her back home to visit her grandmother.   With intentions of staying only a few months, she quickly rediscovers her roots and her love of the country and the farm she grew up on.    While visiting her grandmother, her best friend from school, Jake, returns home with his fiancĂ©e, Cam; Stella, a mysterious stranger, rents the Stone House; and her grandmother has knee surgery needing more help than ever.   As the summer moves on, Annie begins to wonder about her future and if New York is really where she belongs. 

My Review:

I started this book and could not put it down.   The beautiful country described throughout the book was also found in my dreams.   I loved that Annie’s Grandmother lived in the same house and kept the traditions and ways of Annie’s childhood alive.   Angela Correll portrayed the differences in family members perfectly with the tension between Annie and her Grandmother.    Even with the tension you could feel the love and respect between them.   

This book has everything you would want in a book.   A tad of romance, lots of family and friends, a ripple of mystery, and lots of lessons to learn can be found within these pages.   As a debut novel Angela Correll  wrote a perfect book.  It is a book I will highly recommend to everyone.
