Karen Kingsbury 3-in-1 Review

I love Karen Kingsbury. She's one of my favorite authors. I just finished three of her novels which were put into one large book and I was not disappointed.

"Where Yesterday Lives" was a story of a broken family who has to rebuild when the father dies. The characters, to me, were a little more irritating than Kingsbury characters usually are. But it was still well-written and interesting, and kept piquing my curiosity.

"When Joy Came to Stay" was my favorite of the three books. It touches on adoption, depression, suicidal thoughts, broken marriage, and love that can overcome anything. So if you like a happy ending, of course you will like this one.

"On Every Side" to me was the least believable Kingsbury book I have ever read. It was a great story but seemed more like every other inspirational romance book I've ever read.

These are older books of Karen Kingsbury's, unrelated, put into a set together. I still recommend them if you like her writing but I don't think these are her best books. Of course, a worst book written by Karen Kingsbury is still twice as good as most other authors, in my opinion.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
