Can a couple's marriage survive a life-changing loss when one of them is responsible for the tragedy?
And the Stars Kept Watch is the story of Catherine and Nathan Osgood, a young couple who has everything they desire. Nathan is married to the woman of his dreams and has a great career to match. Catherine, with her two young boys, has the family and the life she's yearned for. With a momentary lapse of judgment, Nathan causes an accident that will alter the course of their lives forever. How do they recover from this horrific event?
Heartbreaking and hopeful, And the Stars Kept Watch explores universal themes of love, grief, recovery, and redemption, and calls us to consider whether "the unforgivable" can ever be forgiven.
Peter Friedrichs is a New Englander at heart. Although he now lives in suburban Philadelphia with his wife Irene, he has spent most of his life in Maine and New Hampshire. His novel, And the Stars Kept Watch, is set in southern Maine and that landscape has a significant influence on the book's protagonists . Peter holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Amherst College, a J.D. from Georgetown Law, and a Masters of Divinity Degree from Andover Newton Theological School. After spending nearly 20 years practicing law in Portland, Maine, Peter was ordained to the ministry in 2006. Since then has served as the pastor of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Delaware County in Media, Pennsylvania. And the Stars Kept Watch is his first novel.
