On The Threshold by Sherrie Ashcraft and Christina Tarabochia

Suzanne-a mother with a long-held secret. Tony-a police officer with something to prove. Beth-a daughter with a storybook future. When all they love is lost, what's worth living for? Suzanne Corbin and her daughter, Beth Harris, live a seemingly easy life. Suzanne has distanced herself from her past, replacing pain with fulfillment as a wife and mother, while Beth savors her husband's love and anticipates the birth of their child. But all that is about to change. Like a sandcastle buffeted by ocean waves, Suzanne's facade crumbles when her perfect life is swept away. Tragedy strikes and police officer Tony Barnett intersects with the lives of both women as he tries to discover the truth. Left adrift and drowning in guilt long ignored, Suzanne spirals downward into paralyzing depression. Beth, dealing with her own grief, must face the challenge of forgiveness. Can these two women learn to trust each other again? Will they find the power of God's grace in their lives?

This mother-daughter duo had written together for fourteen years and felt the time had come to publish their co-written novel, On the Threshold, after many rounds of making it to the final committee–or even a verbal contract before a company downsized–but never quite getting that sale. While their plans were to eventually publish others’ novels, they had no idea what they were in for.

In the words of Ephesians 3:19-20, “Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.” (NASB) The growth of Ashberry Lane is surely more than the two women were ever able to imagine.

My Thoughts:

This is a beautiful book of love, forgiveness, and restoration. Suzanne and Beth mother and daughter, suffer incredible losses, and must rebuild their lives. Suzanne's secret throws Beth for a loop, and causes more friction than was already present. Suzanne's impulsive act of desperation from loneliness brings about healing not only between the mother and daughter, but a healing that on Christ can bring! Highly recommended!
