    If you love Karen Kingsbury, then you will love A Kingsbury Coll

    If you love Karen Kingsbury, then you will love A Kingsbury Collection.  Three of Karen's best novels combined into one over-sized novel.  This is a collection Karen's fans surely won't want to miss.




    A Kingsbury Collection includes: Where Yesterday Lives, When Joy Came to Stay, and On Every Side.




    Where Yesterday Lives tells the story of Pulitzer Prize winner, Ellen Barrett.  Lost in her faith, struggling in her marriage and missing the past, Ellen longs for long ago times.  Ellen returns home, after her father's recent death to find changes she wasn't expecting and a future God had planned, even though she had not.




    When Joy Came to Stay shares the story of the Stovall's.  Ben and Maggie have a life most people dream about.  What they don't have is the one thing that only sweet Amanda Joy can provide.  This novel brings to life the faith of child who brings others closer to God in an unexpected way.




    On Every Side, newscaster Faith Evans finds herself telling the story of an one-hundred-year-old statue of Jesus.  The statue stands in a small-town park.  Jordan Riley supports the belief that this statue is a violation of the separation of church and state and wants to see the statue removed.  Battle lines are drawn but can love overcome all? 




    As with all of Karen Kingsbury's great novels, love and God bring others together, triumphing over all.  Karen's books are sure to restore your faith and leave you wanting to read more. 




    A Kingsbury Collection is available for $19.99 in paperback form.

    I enjoyed all three stories in this book. I was with emotional though out the book. The first book is about learning to deal with death of a love one and learn to get though your marriage struggles of your marriage that you when though.

    The second book talks about depression and a bit about marriage struggles. This book also talks about telling the truth and adoption. This is quite  a story and about foster care as well.

    The third story is about death as well and learning to trusting in good.

    Sorry for the lack on this it was hard to come up for each one and I really can not come with more.

    It was a very good read. I would highly recommend the collection.

    I have read many of Karen Kingsbury books. She holds my interest from beginning to end. I appreciate the strong Biblical messages she weaves throughout each book.

    I'm 15 years old and Karen Kingsbury is my favorite author! The first book that I have read by her was On Every Side and I loved it! Then The next books I read was When Joy Came to Stay and Where Yesterday Lives. It is sad, but in the end there was always a connection of happiness through God.!
