Bridget Landry's stable world is falling apart. Everyone around her is growing and changing, leaving her feeling alienated and alone. When her best friend, Mark Beaumont, is ordained a Catholic priest, Bridget mourns the end of their close friendship. Adding to her anxiety is the return of Mark's older brother, Philip, who left home to pursue a career in advertising. Overwhelmed by guilt for losing contact with Philip, who provided stability during her difficult childhood, Bridget now finds herself in a spiritual crisis.A chance encounter with another parish priest starts Bridget on a road of self-discovery. Fighting a deep feeling of abandonment, and with the help of her new spiritual director, she begins searching for God's call in her own life. But what is God calling her to do, and how does Philip fit into God's plan for her? Soon Bridget will discover that change doesn't always mean instability and life is filled with endings-and beginnings.

About the Author

Catherine DePasquale has always dreamed of being a writer, but as it sometimes goes, life took her in a different direction. When fate had her unemployed and feeling down, she took out her laptop and typed up a little story that had been floating around in her head for two years. That story became her first novel, A Future Spring. Since then, she has branched out. Drawing on her Catholic faith, she writes fictional stories that both explore moral themes, and entertain with realistic characters and engaging plots. When she is not working her day job, knitting, crocheting, or reading, she can be found at her writing desk dreaming up her next story. She currently lives in Northeastern Pennsylvania with her husband.
