Grace’s fiancé, bothered by her outspoken stance on purity and her near-constant travel as a recording artist, has broken off their relationship. Exhausted and half-sick at the end of her current concert tour, she books a flight home, but traumatic events result in a paralyzing fear of flying. Stuck at home due to a major snowstorm and facing major questions about her future and her faith, Grace begins, for the first time, to connect with the residents of Beecham Street. What she discovers in these unexpected relationships could change everything.

The first in the Windy City Neighbors series, Grounded is an uplifting, contemporary tale featuring characters courageously wrestling with the spiritual and practical issues of real life. the series employs the innovative storytelling technique of “parallel novels,” each with its own drama and story arc, but whose characters’ lives become intertwined and affect one another. Grounded welcomes you to Beecham Street — a typical isolated American neighborhood that might just be a place of hope.
