I'm an avid reader and this writer is NOT comparable to Jan Karon, Lavryle Spencer, or any others that I currently read. I found her writing to be "not believable", conversations between characters over done (no one talks like that). During the same day I was listening to an audio book while working around the house..by Lavryle Spencer (That Camden Summer) and the difference in their writing abilities "BLARED" out at me. I was hoping I had found another writer/author who I would enjoy, but I'm sorry to say, it's not Kathleen Morgan. Her story line was very similar to "Letters of a Homesteader Woman" which is a non-fiction book,(WONDERFUL!!)but Ms. Morgan's content came up short of an interesting, believable book. Maeve Binchy, Rosamunde Pilcher, Anne Rivers Siddons, Adriana Trigaini, and so many more are great, NOT in the same league with this writer. Since the e-book was FREE, at least I didn't overpay for it. I will delete it from my Kindle.
Loved the story. Inspirational and touching. The stress on forgiveness for things that seem unforgivable, with God's help can be forgiven, oh so true. The characters were freed from a bondage when they forgave. Loved the characters. They were well developed which kept me from going to bed on time at night. Loved the Christian values of the sanctity of marriage.
This book was so inspiring! A Biblical lesson in leaning on the Lord and trusting His will above our own, even when it's difficult and contrary to our heart's desires. Loved this book and highly recommend!
Daughter of Joy was hard to put down. It is one of the first Ebooks i read.The story was well-written, wholesome romantic fiction. I highly recommend it, and will be looking for more ebooks by Kathleen Morgan. I read two to three books per week, and many are fun, but not necessarily memorable. When I finished Daughter of Joy, I remember thinking, "That was a good one."
I like that the main character in this book realizes her vulnerability and works to serve others out ,of her pain.
At first I was a little disappointed at one of the choices she made but later she realized it wasn't the right thing in the eyes of the Lord. There were a few surprises thrown in that kept it interesting. Overall I enjoyed this book and would read it again.
