I enjoyed this book! Bcz of the necessity of the background info it wz a little slow getting started... And the setting/comments were quite a bit mature themed at times and this was a bit shocking for a Christian novel... Overall tho it had a good ending and theme:) I would recommend this book to a mature adult :)
I was pleased with the Book "Daughter of Joy". Once I sat down to read it I had to read and read till I reached the last page. The Plot was set up very good, keeping you interested till the very end. The characters are interesting and well described. It is a nice read.
What I disliked about the Book was that it was Scripturally incorrect. The Lord tells us not to be "unequally yoked"(that is all I will say to not give away the story). Our body does create feelings and only because we have them does not mean they are from the Lord...
But once again I will say, if you want an interesting read "Daughter of Joy" will sure be enjoyable!
I love this book. I can relate to most of the struggles that the characters have experienced, especially when it comes to forgiving those who wronged us. Excellent writer and very believable characters. it's the first book of Kathleen Morgan that I've read and I will definitely buy her books now.
This story is an excellent reminder of ... Isaiah 55:6-11
Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near; let the wicked forsake their way, and the unrighteous their thoughts; let them return to the Lord, that He may have mercy on them, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts."
When we cannot explain why things happen .. a good reminder that God's ways are not our ways, they are higher than our ways, and God ALWAYS wants what is best for us.
I downloaded the ebook about a month ago, haven't read from this author before and I can say that I truly enjoyed the book!! The book is well written in to such an extent that it took me more time than normal to finish the story. To me the story felt real, not like "it could" happen to somebody but like "it happens" to people. The characters' feelings came out of the pages and I felt them, I cried with them, I laughed with them, and I learned to love people who don't deserve my love . Unlike other books, I wasn't sure how the story was going to end, so that is a plus!!
Another plus is the way God used this book to touch my heart, the words written by Kathleen Morgan, were words my heart needed to hear!!
