*Debut author*
{ Southern Fiction}
Grounded Cover
GROUNDED introduces the reader to the jet-set world of flight attendant Annie Taylor, an independent woman leading a fast-paced big city lifestyle. On the surface she seems to have it all – a high-flying career that takes her to glamorous places, a New York City lifestyle, and the “perfect” boyfriend. But a sudden lay-off from her job quickly shows Annie that her life is not all it seems, and instead of racing towards a bright future she’s actually running away from the past.
When her life begins to fall apart Annie returns to her Kentucky roots, seeking to reconcile her past and rebuild her future. Annie’s return to her family’s farm brings her face-to-face with a shotgun-wielding grandmother and her childhood sweetheart. As she comes to grips with her own issues, Annie is faced with a farm in disrepair, a stubborn and ailing grandmother and conflicted feelings about the boy she left behind so many years ago.
In the style of authors such as Susan Mallery and Jan Watson, first-time novelist Angela Correll has created a rich tapestry of characters with strong ties to family and faith. The author’s passion for sustainable agriculture is also represented in Annie’s rediscovered love of her family’s farm. GROUNDED brings its characters to a crossroads in life where pasts are confronted and second chances are born.  As the story unfolds, Annie lays old ghosts to rest and sees a glimmer of hope for a new life; reconciling with her grandmother and discovering unexpected feelings for Jake. But when an opportunity arises, Annie will be forced to choose between her past and the future. Will she return to her jet-set ways or will she stayed grounded?
