I have been hiding away and reading every chance I get. You know I have many books to read daily. But this one has been the one that has traveled with me to Doctor visits, overnight stays house sitting and by my bed at night. It is a trio of books all written by Karen Kinsbury, The Kingsbury Collection.
This trilogy of books takes you along the path of life as we feel it. Karen Kingsbury has done a wonderful job of relating the confusing women feel as they do their best to make the best decisions for themselves and their families. Only as a woman can know the inner struggles we feel every day to walk the right path both within ourselves and with God is never easy. Here we see three story lines laid out that make our hearts yearn to share with them.
The only thing I did not like is that all three books are printed in one. The book is heavy and hard to handle. This would have been better if each book was on it's own and packaged in a holder for the trio.
The Kingsbury Collection
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?
Thanks so to Blogging for Books, WaterBrook Multnomah and Karen Kingsbury for sharing this book with me for review.
