Long, long ago in a place far away, three young orphan girls choose a different path in life than washing floors, doing laundry, and cooking meals. Determined to take control of their own destinies, they commit themselves to a quest filled with danger, adventure, evil villains and beautiful friends. Their goal is nothing short of proving to the world that girls can be heroes too. In this combination of Books 1 & 2, the Three Lady Knights face challenges that not only threaten their lives, but that seek to rip apart the one thing that they hold most dear-the bonds of deepest friendship.
Sarah Crawford, her parents, and baby brother vacation every summer with her beloved grandparents, Gram and Gramps. Her favorite activity is a special night of star catching with Gramps and her dad. On a summer night like many others, she overhears her grandparents talking about how much they are looking forward to retirement, selling their house, and traveling. The next day, however, everything changes. Sarah’s parents and brother are killed in a car accident on their way to the airport and Sarah herself is gravely injured. It’s touch and go, but Sarah gradually recovers. Sarah, a smart girl, feels guilty that she’s ruined her grandparents’ retirement dreams and comes up with a plan of her own when they are forced to go back to Washington to sell her family’s home. A custody hearing with her other grandparents, who have not been part of her life, complicates matters but may be the answer she’s looking for. When that doesn’t lead to an automatic stay in Washington, Sarah takes matters into her own hands and sets out on a cold, dark night to her best friend’s house. She escapes dangers on the street and police officers take her back home. It’s only in the face of how much more they could have lost that her grandparents realize their dreams—now changed—may come true after all. Star Catching, an unforgettable young adult novel, shares the tender story of a family struck by tragedy that discovers what is truly important, just in time for Christmas.
