Three Page-Turning Novels in One Volume!
Where Yesterday Lives
Barrett is a Pulitzer prize-winning journalist with an uncertain
marriage, a forgotten faith, and haunting memories of her picturesque
hometown and the love she left behind. The eldest of five siblings, she
longs for the time, long ago, when they were a happy family. Now Ellen’s
beloved father is dead, and she returns to her childhood home to make
peace–with the people who still live there, with the losses and changes
that time has wrought, and with the future God has set before her.
When Joy Came to Stay
Stovall is one of the golden people. She has it all together...at least
on the surface. Ben Stovall is a godly husband and successful attorney.
He has no idea of the darkness about to overtake his life. Amanda Joy
is a child of society–abused, broken, thrown away. But her trust in God
is still alive. When Joy Came to Stay is the heart-wrenching
story of one woman’s descent into the shadows of depression, her
husband’s search for understanding, and a precious child’s unwavering
On Every Side
Faith Evans is an
up-and-coming newscaster, a woman of honor and integrity who must take a
stand against the one man she never imagined would be her enemy. A
beloved, hundred-year-old statue of Jesus stands in a small-town
park–but some say it’s a clear violation of separation of church and
state that must come down. Jordan Riley is a powerful attorney fighting
for human rights and against God, but still reckoning with bitter
boyhood losses. Amid political intrigue, social injustice, and personal
conflicts, will love be enough when the battle rages on every side?
A Kingsbury Collection: Where Yesterday Lives, When Joy Came to Stay, and On Every Side by Karen Kingsbury is 3 Novels in one. I haven't read a lot by Karen Kingsbury but the books I have read do NOT disappoint. Her stories are beautifully written and truly honor God and His love for us. In each of these books show personal struggles of the characters and how God worked in their lives to help overcome these struggles. I found myself taken in from the start of each story and had a hard time putting them down. Each of these stories addresses problems that men and women face on a
regular basis: struggles with their belief in God, struggles within
marriage, depression, the feeling that life is falling apart. Each story
touches on different aspects of life.
I highly recommend this collection to anyone who enjoys Christian Fiction and enjoy Karen Kingsbury's books. You will not be disappointed. I look forward to reading more by Karen Kingsbury.
