Item description for A Kingsbury Collection: Three Novels in One by Karen Kingsbury...
Overview "Where Yesterday Lives, When Joy Came to Stay," and "On Every Side" are collected in this edition--three page-turning novels in one volume.
Publishers Description Three Page-Turning Novels in One Volume "Where Yesterday Lives " Ellen 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 " Maggie 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 faith. "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?
What Readers Are Saying About KAREN KINGSBURY Fiction... " ""All-and I do mean all-of Karen Kingsbury's books have touched my spiritual life in a deep way. I have recommended her books to men and women alike " "-Debbie, Marana, AZ " "Karen Kingsbury's Christian fiction is the standard by which I judge all Christian fiction." "-Robin, Fairfax, VA " "Karen Kingsbury is our book club's favorite author. We often discuss how each of her novels not only entertain us, but inspire us to live out our faith in a real, everyday, every moment way." "-Lynda, Covington, WA " "Karen's books never cease to amaze me. After reading one, I not only feel connected to the characters and the events, I feel I've walked in the presence of Christ and He's spoken mightily to me. I always cry when I finish one...tears of good-bye to the friends I've come to love and tears of thankfulness to my heavenly Father. I can' t wait to read the next one " "-Linda, Batavia, IL " Story Behind the Book Each of my novels is a piece of my heart. "Where Yesterday Lives" was my first-ever novel, and as such it is somewhat autobiographical. The childhood story of Ellen Barrett, her love for her parents and siblings, is my story-though her current story and struggles are fictional. "On Every Side" sheds light on the struggle for religious freedom in today's climate, something I am passionate about. Finally, "When Joy Came to Stay" is the story of one woman's battle against depression and the secrets of her past.

Reviews - What do customers think about Kingsbury Collection (3-In-1)?
Karen Kingsbury Dec 1, 2008
There is not one book that she has written that has not touched me in some way. And it always seems to make me feel like God is really there for anyone. All we need to do is confess our sins and admit that we need a Saviour and He is forever ours. There is no other guarantee in life like that one and it does not cost any money just pride.
Christian fiction at its best Mar 11, 2007
Karen Kingsbury is my favorite Christian fiction writer. I often find myself taking notes over certain situations in her books to use in teaching classes at my church. Her characters are real and we learn, as they do, spiritual lessons which apply to life.
Karen Kingsbury's book are the best Jan 9, 2007
As always Karen Kingsbury has a special way of getting to the heart of the matter. She is the most insightful writer I have ever read. All of her books deal with everyday concerns. Christian's are not perfect, they make mistakes and wrong choices just like everyone else. Karen shows us that God never leaves us, even when we choose to leave him out of our lives for a season. He's always there waiting for us to turn back to him.I love Karen's books and can't wait for the next one to come out.
