Everyone who knows Maggie Stovall feels she lives a pleasant life. However, while her mask to the world may look nice, inside her mind Maggie wonders if she is going insane. Wherever she happens to be, Maggie sees an image of a child and that takes it toll on her leading to clinical depression.

Maggie knows she is at a crossroad, but has doubts she can take a righteous path to happiness even with God¿s help. The depression is becoming so debilitating, her marriage and foster caring are in jeopardy. Will she give in or will she allow God to escort her back into the light?

WHEN JOY CAME TO STAY is an inspirational tale about finding God vs. surrendering to depression. Surprisingly, Kate Kingsbury does not provide pat answers and simple Hallelujahs to cure the ailing Maggie. Instead, readers will feel the lead character¿s growing pain and actually sympathize to the point that when the tale is through, the audience will feel emotionally and mentally drained. This is definitely an inspiring tale for those readers suffering from depression and anyone who needs a lift.

Definitely one of Kingsburys best pieces. It had me hooked from the beginning to the end. Be prepared with your kleenex though! Totally a heartfelt tear jerker, but great storyline! Without a doubt, worth the money.

This is a great read. The situations with the social services are so real. The children in foster care are moved around from one home to another. The children who are adopted after the age of six into a loving home are lucky. The characters in the story seem so real, you can feel the mental anguish they are going through.
