Reviews - What do customers think about Daughter of Joy (Brides of Culdee Creek, Book 1)?
Really very good Jan 30, 2006
Daughter of Joy was a joy to read. Meaty and substantial, the story is powerful and driven by strong characters. It makes you realize how flat and monotone the characters in some other christian books are. It is so refreshing to read about believable characters whose struggles, emotions and reactions seem natural instead of forced. The last quarter of the book drags a bit and for me there was not enough of an emotional payoff after the considerable build up between the two main characters, but Abby remains one of my favorite fictional characters. Very well written and enjoyable.
Powerful story, rich characters! Jan 24, 2005
This is book is excellent. The characters are complex and believable. The basic storyline may have been spun hundreds of times but this by far outshines all the ones I've read, and I've read a lot. When you get to a book like this you realize this is "Fine dining"! Ms Morgan obviously incorporated and instilled her own suffering into a beautiful book.
A Joyous Read Jul 31, 2002
I truly enjoyed this book. Ms. Morgan brought out all aspects of a relationship in this book. Sometimes, the Christian/Inspirational fiction books are stiff and lack a depth to the characters. I was happy to see that this book didn't.
Abby comes to Culdee Creek to be a housekeeper to Conor MacKay and to give lessons to his daughter Beth. This experiences teaches both of them the value of friendship, a kind word, trust and love. There were times the writing brought tears to my eyes because of the vividness of the descriptions.
A wonderful book, and I will be sure to find book 2.
An Inspiring Christian Romance Jul 2, 2002
I've been a fan of Ms. Morgan's for many years. I loved all her futuristic and fantasy novels. It was a wonderful surprise to find out that she wrote Christian romance novels too and I didn't hesitate in buying this book.
I've never been more pleased. She writes with her heart and I believe its because she's been through the grief and is narrating from experience. I cried along with the heroine and cheered with her when she finally overcame her sorrow. I'd give this book to someone who has lost a loved one and is in need of inspiration and God's love.
Powerful, Realistic, Needed in Inspritaional Fiction Jun 5, 2002
I haven't read any of Kathleen Morgan's previous books, but she has brought inspirational fiction a gift. The reference to intimacy (physical, emotional and spiritual) is realistic and powerful, although not graphic. Imagination has it's own rewards. The story line is great! The characters seem alive! Keep writing inspirational fiction, Kathleen!
