Publisher's Description

Who Says Giving Up Dreams Isn't Success? 

Ally Cervantes has all she wants in life—an upcoming wedding, a chance to prove herself with a writing gig, and two great kids. But her life turns for the worse when the unexpected happen and she soon finds herself struggling with a rebellious teen daughter, a shaky job, and a shakier engagement. With her newfound faith acting as a life preserver, Ally discovers if you’re in the deep end of the lake, you’d better learn how to swim. Although fiction, The Deep End of the Lake, is written from the authors’ personal compassion for families who have the privilege and responsibility to care for a child with a disability. Having worked with autistic students, Carol has seen first-hand the stress and demands these parents face and wanted to capture in a story those pressures, all while providing the encouragement that a beautiful hope and faith can bring into the struggles.

Author Bio

A seasoned writer, Carol Grace Stratton has written two other books, Lake Surrender, and Changing Zip Codes (a devotional for movers). In addition, she has penned more than 500 articles in various publications including InTouch, CBN.com, Your Church magazine, and was a reporter for Mooresville Weekly for a few years. She is a contributing writer for Christianity.com, and she blogs regularly on carolgstratton.com, where she talks about family, faith, and God’s connection to the modern woman. 

Carols’ experience working with special needs students and their parents led her to realize she needed to capture a story that embodies their struggles. In Deep End of the Lake, the sequel to Lake Surrender, she continues her story with Ally Cervantes, who struggles with balancing career, family, and remarriage. Carol also speaks to women’s groups such as Newcomers and MOPS and has taught a blogging class at a local bookstore.

Editorial Reviews

"Settle in with a cozy blanket to read Stratton’s sequel novel Deep End of the Lake. You’ll feel the chilliness of a Michigan winter in the descriptive prose and shiver with the concern and worry of raising a teenager. Your heart will flutter as Ally, once divorced, contemplates remarriage and settles into her new life far from California. Stratton captures and catapults us into any woman’s romantic side, along with our emotions as mothers, especially mothers of special needs children. But most of all, Stratton show us how God guides us on our journey—particularly when we’re in the deep end.”—Suzanne Ruff author of The Reluctant Door
"Deep End of the Lake grabbed me from the start. Carol Grace Stratton has a wonderful way with words, a wonderful way with a story, and creates fascinating characters. I loved Lake Surrender, so I was eager to read the sequel. It was well worth the wait. Stratton weaves complicated emotions through the book that will resonate with readers from all walks of life. I love that she dwells on the life of a family with a special needs child, but so much of what she feels is what all moms feel. The scenes dealing with the teenaged daughter are just as real. The romance is sweet and tender. The setting impacts the characters and mood. Deep End of the Lake is sure to keep you turning pages and leave you wanting more.”—Norma Gail Holtman, author of Within Golden Bands
