Christian fiction at its best

Karen Kingsbury is my favorite Christian fiction writer. I often find myself taking notes over certain situations in her books to use in teaching classes at my church. Her characters are real and we learn, as they do, spiritual lessons which apply to life.

Karen Kingsbury's book are the best

As always Karen Kingsbury has a special way of getting to the heart of the matter. She is the most insightful writer I have ever read. All of her books deal with everyday concerns. Christian's are not perfect, they make mistakes and wrong choices just like everyone else. Karen shows us that God never leaves us, even when we choose to leave him out of our lives for a season. He's always there waiting for us to turn back to him.I love Karen's books and can't wait for the next one to come out.


This collection was wonderful. I especially enjoy how the author takes the reader on a start-incline-peak-descend-safe home journey. Wow! You feel every emotion, and you picture every scene and place. Thank you, Karen!!

Devoured the entire volume in one weekend

Kingsbury is one of the easiest-to-read authors I've encountered, yet her prose does not sound elementary or dumbed-down. She weaves a fabulous story and keeps a reader turning pages for hours at a time. The stories in this volume are not her greatest, but they are worthy and compelling. My biggest complaint with Kingsbury is that too many of her characters share the same first name -- sometimes even in the same book. Let's start placing bets on how many Kingsbury characters will be named Jake or John in her career. Of the three, "When Joy Came to Stay" was the best. It's a very moving, honest work that offers insight into depression and hope.
