On the Threshold

By Sherrie Ashcraft, Christina Berry 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 façade 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?

Book Takeaway:

That there is always hope if your trust is in God. No matter how dark things look, there is joy waiting on the other side.

Why the author wrote this book:

Once we decided to write a book together, we knew immediately that we wanted to show various sides of a mother-daughter relationship, as well as tackle a subject not many Christian books cover in a realistic fashion—depression. Which Sherrie has had personal experience dealing with. Don’t worry, as it’s an uplifting book and has humor scattered throughout, but we wanted to spotlight a tough subject.Yes, we took our characters into a dark place, but we also get to show the glory of God shining in their hearts. Eventually, that is.
