A New Novel for Author Dawn Lajeunesse

Star Catching

 A family struck by tragedy is forced to rebuild their lives around a new mold.

Sarah Crawford’s family vacationed every summer with her beloved Gram and Gramps. Every day was a fun adventure, but Sarah’s favorite was their special night of star catching, with Gramps and her dad.

On the last night of vacation, Sarah overhears her grandparents saying how much they look forward to selling their house and traveling unencumbered after Gram retires.

When an accident on their way to the airport kills Sarah’s parents and brother, Marian and Ed cope with grief and the unanticipated responsibility of raising Sarah.

Sarah’s recovery is complicated by guilt over ruining her grandparents’ plans. She decides she must return to Washington, to the home she shared with her parents. Precocious academically, in her immaturity she doesn’t grasp the unrealistic nature of her goal and the dangers of her attempts to achieve it.
