Product Description

From Library Journal

In this spectacular new series, Morgan, an acclaimed writer of historical and futuristic romances, turns her deft pen to the Christian market to reflect a personal change. Abigail Stanton, who recently lost her husband and child, moves to Culdee Creek to become a housekeeper for Conor MacKay, a man whose previous housekeepers warmed more than dinner. Abby makes it clear that she won't tolerate any disreputable advances on his part, but she feels God led her to this ranch and this family for a purpose. As she grows to love Conor and his daughter, her faith inspires Conor to believe that there might just be something to this idea of religion. This wonderful start is for all collections.

Daughter of Joy is a beautiful story of redemptive love. Abby's walk of faith, sometimes followed by sheer force of will alone, resonated in my heart. And Conor's painful journey back to the safe harbor of a loving and forgiving God brought me to tears.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Joyous Read July 31 2002
I truly enjoyed this book. Ms. Morgan brought out all aspects of a relationship in this book. Sometimes, the Christian/Inspirational fiction books are stiff and lack a depth to the characters. I was happy to see that this book didn't.
Abby comes to Culdee Creek to be a housekeeper to Conor MacKay and to give lessons to his daughter Beth. This experiences teaches both of them the value of friendship, a kind word, trust and love. There were times the writing brought tears to my eyes because of the vividness of the descriptions.
A wonderful book, and I will be sure to find book 2.

This is such a thought provoking book. How often our relationship with The Lord is coloured by what is happening in our lives. This book dealt with real issues that could be encountered in a persons life, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Read Can't Wait For Book 2 March 17 2014

I loved this book, at times a bit preachy but otherwise I couldn't put the book down I really like the stubbornness of of character and how it was offset with the willingness of another. It showed the difference of a christian and a non believer, and how by our action not our words we can help to heal others and bring them to glory.

This book was full of broken and unfulfilling marriages and relationships. It taught the truth of forgiveness as a healing thing and the truth of God's love.

I would imagine that some people would like this book but I found that it preached to me and just makes you feel guilty because how can everyone be so good we all try but this was so predictable not my kind of book...anyway..

4.0 out of 5 stars Romance is not dead! July 1 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. A book that also had me stand back and take a look at various areas of my life and dig deep...."Am I living a life based on strong ethical/moral values? " Decisions made now will affect what happens later--not only for me but for others. There is a Christian undertow throughout the book. Do not let that deter you. It doesn't matter whether you are Christian, Jewish, Hindu,....whatever faith....this book tells the story of a woman who lives by courage and faith even when she is scared. In the end, doing the right thing, is always the answer and is well some circles that is named 'karma'.

This is story that draws you in and keeps you hooked from beginning to end.

Everything that happened in life-whether for good or bad, joyous or tragic reasons-held the potential to sanctify and bring one closer to the Lord. Even, Abby realized, the personal pain and horror of loss. In life's catastrophic upheavals, in the self-fragmentation, confusion, and spirit-shattering grief, there was always the hope of rebirth to a new and even better life-a life not of this world but of the Spirit. &quote;

"Faith isn't grounded on emotions. It's grounded on the will. It's grounded in the act of taking up your cross and following the Lord wherever He leads, through good times and bad, through dark days and happy ones. "We're not tested and tempered in good times, Abby." Ella released her hand and sat back in her chair. "Our true test," she said softly, "lies in the dark night of our despair." &quote;
