Grounded, tells the story of a young woman who returns to her Kentucky roots when her life begins to fall apart. 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. Grounded brings its characters to a crossroads in life where pasts are confronted and second chances are born.


Angela Correll is a seventh generation Kentuckian. She enjoys small town life in Stanford, KY, and owns a shop on Main Street selling handcrafted goat milk soap and other local products. Angela and her husband Jess are partners in the Bluebird, a farm-to-table restaurant, promoting food produced in a humane, sustainable and natural way. She combines her passion for hospitality and historic preservation by renovating historic homes into guesthouses. Angela has written over fifty columns for local newspapers about life, family, and farming and holds a Master’s Degree from the University of Kentucky in Library Science. She lives on a farm with her husband, Jess, and an assortment of cattle, horses, goats and chickens. Grounded is her first novel.
