It’s been almost three years since the accident and Serena’s death. Widower, Steve Grenville, and his seventeen-year-old daughter, are starting to begin again as a family of two. The residents of the small town of Catalpa Creek have recovered from the Grenville’s tragedy and returned to the illusion of living in peace and security.

But change comes as it always does.

The promise of a new relationship for Steve develops. Renée fears losing her dad. And she’s afraid her mom will be forgotten. When the community-sponsored refugee family from Syria arrives, buried feelings of prejudice and fear surface in Catalpa Creek. Anger and violence erupt. The community is in turmoil. Strengthened by their faith, Steve and Renée live with courage through the tragedy and unexpected joy that life offers them.

Janet Stobie has written an intriguing story of laughter and tears. To Begin Again will nudge you to consider how your faith affects your own response to events and people in today’s world.
