A Kingsbury Collection

A Kingsbury Collection: Three Novels in One: Where Yesterday Lives, When Joy Came to Stay, On Every Side  -     
        By: Karen Kingsbury

Karen Kingsbury is one of my favorite authors! 

She has a gift for putting words together in a way that always pulls at my heartstrings.  The trio of stories in A Kingsbury Collection was no different. 

First, you encounter Ellen in When Yesterday Lives.  Ellen has had a lot of successes and failures in life.  When her father dies, she returns to her childhood home to make peace with people and events from her past.  Ellen has no idea what God has in store for her.

Next, you meet Maggie in When Joy Came to Stay.  Maggie and her family are on an uncertain journey with depression and all that comes with it.  Faith in God will see them through.

Finally, you meet Faith in On Every Side.  Faith is a young woman who must make a stand for the truth of God in our uncertain world.

As always Karen Kingsbury introduces and tells interesting tales of the tough stuff we deal with in this world.
