Editorial Reviews


“Ann Marie Stewart writes with immeasurable spirit as she probes the deep currents of faith and love. Abby McAndrews tells her compelling tale of family grief with truth and admirable humor. Stars in the Grass is a powerful novel that will light your way.”
—Alyson Hagy, author of Boleto and Ghosts of Wyoming

“In this remarkable novel, Ann Marie Stewart explores the aftermath of tragedy with intelligence, grace, and subtle humor. Stars in the Grass is a story of great loss, but also of great hope. A beautiful, haunting tale, it is one I won’t soon forget.
—Ann Tatlock, award-winning author of Once Beyond a Time

Stars in the Grass reminds us that even when we think God has forgotten us, we’re forever on His mind. Ann Marie Stewart’s writing is outstanding and her voice captivating. I fell in love with this intriguing novel from the first page.”
—Bestselling novelist Kate Lloyd, author of Leaving Lancaster, Pennsylvania Patchwork, and Forever Amish

“Ann Marie Stewart’s beautifully crafted prose depicts a family in deep turmoil as they walk through a dark valley. . . . Told in first-person narrative by nine-year-old Abby, Stewart gets her voice just right as a precocious child thrust into the world of grief. A thought-provoking and sensitive look into the different paths each family member travels in the aftermath of tragedy, the role of God and faith along the path, and the way time wraps its way around this family until they each can embrace the truth and move forward.”
—Elizabeth Musser, bestselling author of The Long Highway Home and The Swan Hous

This sweet story will speak to readers who have experienced the loss of a loved one, especially a child. The use of flashbacks makes the telling a little awkward, as the story loses the emotional immediacy of the experience when told from an adult perspective, but Abby and her family offer a realistic look at how tragedy can tear a family apart from each other and God.
(Kerry Sutherland RT Book Reviews 2017-02-01)

"Told through the persepective of nine-year old Abby, Stars in the Grass offers a realistic look at the heavy toll tragedies can inflict on families. No easy answers, but many glimpes of grace are expressed through the neighbors and friends who help the family begin their journey of healing."
(Lynnn Waalkes Christian Market Magazine 2017-02-09)

Book Description

The idyllic world of nine-year-old Abby McAndrews is transformed when a tragedy tears her family apart. Before the accident, her dad, Reverend John McAndrews, had all the answers, but now his questions and guilt threaten to destroy his family. Abby’s fifteen-year-old brother, Matt, begins an angry descent 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. Set in a small Midwestern town in 1970, Abby’s heartbreaking remembrances are balanced by humor and nostalgia as her family struggles with—and ultimately celebrates—an authentic story of faith and life after loss.
