Overview

On an unseasonably warm February day, ten-year-old Angie delivers the town tabloid with natural wisdom and confidence. The characters she meets along her way have varied adult troubles and lives. Born with Down syndrome and an ability to see angels, Angie’s simple knowledge and common sense transform those who line her route. Based on the third joyful mystery of the Rosary – the birth of Christ, Angie’s story emphasizes that God often speaks to us through others. He delights in using the weakest to reach the strongest. Christ humbled himself to come as a babe, so his wisdom comes to us through those considered the least by society. Karen’s third, highly anticipated novel continues the spiritual journey her readers have come to expect.

Editorial Reviews

book back cover, Amazon
Down Right Good, the latest novel from Karen Kelly Boyce, is told mostly from the perspective of Angie, a ten year old with Down Syndrome. Refreshingly (and sometimes brutally) honest, Angie has more wisdom than many "normal" adults. I highly recommend this wonderful book to anyone, most especially to those who question the value of Down Syndrome children in our society. This novel illustrates the uniqueness and value of every human being, no matter how "different."
Amazon
Angie, a girl with Down syndrome delivers a free paper to the people in her town. We join her during her route where we learn about her and her customers and the lessons she gives them and all of us. Simple messages but ones that are easily forgotten as we go about our every day lives. Each chapter begins with a Bible verse. I liked that the book was written with a Christian point of view, with Angie's grandmother as her main teacher. With a surprise ending for Angie, her family and the whole to

Amazon
Excellent book, enjoyed it thoroughly, great stories, with some spiritual aspect to each. Karen Kelly Boyce has done a great job, waiting for more books from this author. Recommend it to anyone who likes no nonsense reading, yet light with interesting characters.

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.
