“There are tragedies big and small in Correll’s novel. People die; opportunities vanish; old friends argue. But the effective, overarching themes are love and perseverance. Annie and Beulah head the strong, complex cast. Correll displays a talent for evoking all the little details that make this town come alive…”

Kirkus Reviews, Granted

“Guarded is a moving, deeply felt novel of love and rebuilding and the way letters can bridge generations and continents both. This multi-layered tale of mystery and family and finding love when it seems on the brink of being lost forever is a fitting sequel to Grounded, and Angela Correll has proven yet again she’s a storyteller of the first order. Read this book!”
