Publisher's Description

Three Page-Turning Novels in One Volume!

Where Yesterday Lives

Ellen 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

Maggie 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 faith.

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?

I always cry when I finish one…tears of good-bye to the friends I’ve come to love and tears of thankfulness to my heavenly Father. I can’ t wait to read the next one!"

Story Behind the Book

Each of my novels is a piece of my heart. Where Yesterday Lives was my first-ever novel, and as such it is somewhat autobiographical. The childhood story of Ellen Barrett, her love for her parents and siblings, is my story–though her current story and struggles are fictional. On Every Side sheds light on the struggle for religious freedom in today’s climate, something I am passionate about. Finally, When Joy Came to Stay is the story of one woman’s battle against depression and the secrets of her past.

Editorial Reviews

What Readers Are Saying About Karen Kingsbury Fiction…

"Karen Kingsbury has been such a godsend. Her books have brought me to God and have motivated my husband and me to remarry after a bad divorce. After not being able to have kids, we now have an adopted boy and are trying to adopt another. Your books show faith, love, and tenderness, and I love them."
—Kathy, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

"I just love all of Karen Kingsbury’s books. Every one has touched me in a very deep way, relating to one or another ’storm’ I have gone through and yet giving me hope that God is always there, carrying us when we don’t care anymore whether we live or die. I have been to that place, and God did lift me up from the depths of sorrow and pain! Thank you so much!"
—Henrietta, British Columbia, Canada

"Karen Kingsbury’s fiction has changed my life by reminding me that there is hope amid seemingly hopeless circumstances and that faith in God’s redemptive plan is the anchor I can hold on to when life’s compasses fail."
—Amy, Lawrenceville, GA

"Karen Kingsbury’s books have touched my life in many different ways, but Where Yesterday Lives really helped me in the death of my father-in-law… Thank you for the great stories."
—Chris, Zeeland, MI

"The Lord prompted me to find a Christian author I enjoyed, and I found Karen Kingsbury. I have struggled with depression to a certain degree all my life, but when I read her book, I was at the bottom. This was the beginning of a wonderful journey to recovery for me."
—Dannell, Brawley, CA

"From Karen Kingsbury’s very first book to her most recent, she has inspired me to be a better person, have a stronger faith in God, and to question how I am raising my family in a world filled with hate and evil."
—Pattie, Oceanside, CA

"When I went off to college, I fell into a dark depression but convinced myself that Christians not only don’t suffer depression, but that it is inherently un-Christian to be depressed… I bought When Joy Came to Stay and read it in one sitting… I was able to receive treatment for my illness and work on dealing with events and behaviors that led to this depression. The book made it easier for me to see that God can use even dark times to bless us and help us grow."
—Deidre E.

"Karen Kingsbury’s fiction has helped me with my family problems. Karen’s books have taught me how to stick together with my family through thick and thin. They have taught me that even when your family may be having a tough time, never give up."
—Ashleigh, Fairfield, CA

"My grandmother has been diagnosed with dementia… Right after her diagnosis, she asked me to bring her some books. I took her everything I own by Karen Kingsbury, which is about ten books. She devoured them! They  encouraged her and gave her hope."
—Donna I.

"I can’t tell you how much Karen Kingsbury’s books have blessed my life. The novels make me think seriously about what commitment means, sticking it out even when all seems gloomy, and understanding the covenant of marriage."
—Nata, Nigeria

    Time came to choose a new book to review for WaterBrook Multnomah. I glanced through the offerings and decided it was time I read something from one of their most prolific and popular authors, Karen Kingsbury.

    I selected A Kingsbury Collection offering the reader three novels in one volume. The novels are Where Yesterday Lives, When Joy Came to Stay, and On Every Side. I will give a short summary and brief review of each.

    Where Yesterday Lives

    Summary: Ellen 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 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.

    My Thoughts: On so many levels I can relate to Ellen Barrett. As a writer, yes, but not a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, I understand her perfectionist personality, her commitment to her job, and the pride she takes in her work. As the middle child of three siblings, who are as disconnected as three could be, I yearned along with Ellen as she hoped to bring peace to her family once again. And as a daughter, I felt her pain as she grieved for her father who was now gone just as I grieved when I lost my best friend and father.

    Kingsbury wastes no time in engaging the reader. From the beginning, you know that you are about to take a journey, a journey about love, hope and faith. A journey about loss, anger, and untold stories. Characters about whom you have to ask no questions as Kingsbury grows them before your eyes. Tension ebbs and flows, and the reader keeps expectantly waiting for something, anything to change or happen.

    I enjoyed Where Yesterday Lives very much and highly recommend it.

    When Joy Came to Stay

    Summary: Maggie 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 faith.

    Maggie and Ben seem to have it all. But do they? They have success, financial means, each loves the Lord. So what could go wrong?

    Amanda Joy is a child who has suffered much at the hands of the foster care system, except for the love of her social worker. Amanda Joy only wants one thing -- to have a mommy and daddy who will keep her forever.

    My Thoughts: The day Maggie falls into the darkest depths of depression is not only one of the hardest days of her life. It also tears Ben's world and potentially his career apart. However, their personal faith commitments are strong and it is clear this will be an important part of healing for Maggie.

    At certain points in the book, I struggled to read through the more dark passages. However, when I finished the book, I saw the relevance of their inclusion.

    To share more would be to reveal far too much and destroy your enjoyment of reading this book.

    On Every Side

    Summary: 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?

    My Thoughts: Of the three novels, this may have been my favorite, perhaps due to my background of 30 plus years spent in a legal career. However, it also focuses on an issue which we are finding more prevalent in our society -- the effort of certain groups to remove plaques, statues and other references to the Christian faith from communities because they believe such evidences are in clear violation of separation of church and state.

    Reading On Every Side went quickly because of fast-paced dialogue and action between the characters. Kingsbury is a master at developing her characters and writing dialogue. In this novel as in When Joy Came to Stay, there is a foster child also looking for a permanent home. Although she doesn't play a major role in the plot and storyline, she does bring a certain lightheartedness to some of the scenes.

    On Every Side is a story of separation in relationships, both familial and friendships. It is a story of loss of faith and restoration. It is the story of reunions and new opportunities and starting over.

    Once again, I enjoyed this novel very much and give it a high recommendation.

    It was a blessing to receive this book with all 3 books in one. (Where Yesterday Lives, When Joy Came to Stay, and On Every Side) It is a very thick book, but that is to be expected. This was a very real book.; a book where it shows how father's need to step up with their daughters and be the role model God wants them to be. I really enjoy the basis of the books of each person realizing family is important and should stick together even in rough times.

    The first book is about Ellen returning home and making some bad decisions that involve an exboyfriend, when she should be focusing attention on her family. I think it is easy to get caught up in thoughts, but we should strive to be the person God wants us to be. Family is important.

    The second book about Maggie who has to face consequences of choices she made in life and dealing with depression. It is a story about forgiving yourself and others.

    The third book about Faith and Jordan and how they find a balance of fighting against each other with the past they have. You see Jordan coming around to God's view of life. I received The Kingsbury Collection from Waterbrook Multnomah for review.

    This is a book that contains the three novels listed below. I have seen other reviewers criticize the size of this book. Yes it is large, but HELLO it is 3 books in 1. Did you think it would be small? *rolls eyes* I have never heard of Karen Kingsbury before getting this book. I just recently started to read Christian Fiction and I am so glad I picked this one up! Karen Kingsbury.......you are one of my new favorite authors and I am proud to have your book on my shelf!

    Where Yesterday Lives

    I LOVED this book and I will tell you why. The very FIRST page is captivating. You immediately want to know who this guy is and what is going on. That continues ALL the way through. I was absorbed in the characters. I wanted to know WHY they were the way they were. I wanted to know if they would be able to work it out or not. Not once did I get bored or want to put it down!

    The way the author wrote this story was amazing to me. Just as I was getting to know a character and really want to know the details, the author switched it and put you in a different character's head. I found this to be both intriguing and frustrating (in a good way). I wanted to find out what the rest of the story was with the character so the author FULLY had my attention and I did NOT want to put this book down!

    Let this be a warning to you all, you WILL cry when you read this. The last few chapters had me crying so hard I could hardly see the book. The emotions were radiating off the pages and I felt like I was there in real life watching all of this unfold. That just amazes me that a book could be so well written like that! Props to you Karen Kingbury! This is one of the best books I have ever read and I am proud to add it to my personal library!!!

    When Joy Came To Stay

    Once again, I am floored by Karen Kingsbury's writing style! This story had you guessing to fill in the missing pieces as she went from character to character. You get to a good point with one character and you are dying to know the rest of the story but it quickly jumps to a different character leaving you desperate for information. I could not put this book down until I finished it.

    I will give you this information. There IS a child abuse scene that is VERY hard to read so if you have a hard time with that, beware. I was crying so hard in that scene I had to walk away for a bit to calm down.

    Once again, she writes so well that I feel like I am in the room with these people. The emotions coming off the pages is just amazing. Very easy to get caught up in this book!

    On Every Side

    This is another great book by Karen, while it was not my favorite, it was still amazing! Written well, full of emotions, and a great story line based on a true story.

    You start off hating Jordan and over the course of the book you find yourself loving him! Faith is an amazing character that caught my attention from the start. She is one of those characters that you quickly fall in love with.
