According to Thy Wordby Karen Kelly Boyce
In a dilapidated trailer on the edge of town, a young mother collapses. Her death leaves four children lost to the care of a shattered man who drowns himself in whiskey, then takes off without them. Can Mary Catherine find it in herself to forgive her father for abandoning them? Michael's unexpected death forces Elly to return home to her cold, selfish mother to face the ghosts of her past. Battling depression, can she find hope within? Stained by poverty, Joseph is a controlling entrepreneur who rises to the top, only to lose his wife and business. Will a prison sentence lock him away forever, or be the key to real change and freedom? These characters face the age-old alternative between good and evil; reaching out in love and forgiveness, or closing themselves off in hatred and pain. The directions they take intertwine their lives and leads each of them on a path to Truth.

Meet the Author
Karen Kelly Boyce was born in Jersey City, New Jersey. She learned her faith and love of reading at the hands of the Sisters of Mercy. Only a few blocks away from the Barron Library, she spent most of her summer days and weekends lost in the stories and biographies of famous people. The turbulent sixties led her away from her first loves of church, reading, and writing. The only part of her faith that remained was the belief that we were made to help others. That belief led her to graduate as an RN in 1974.
Karen married in 1975, and raised two children. After going through a Life in the Spirit Seminar, she found peace and eternal love in the faith that would sustain her. In 1990, she became very ill and was eventually diagnosed with end stage Lyme Disease and was unable to work as a nurse anymore. As a disabled person, Karen's love of reading was rekindled and her love of writing born again.
All three of Karen's books have received the esteemed Catholic Writers Guild seal of approval.
