"Kingsbury's poignant tale of a lost and broken family and how they experience God's
miraculous healing is a sure guarantee to bring hope and joy to her readers."
"--Melody Carlson, bestselling author, Diary of a Teenage Girl series
"A thought-provoking account of the battle of depression in a believer's life. It leaves
no doubt that God is loving, merciful, and faithful."

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."
