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." --Karen KingsburyFrom the Trade Paperback edition.
