Maggie Stovall is trapped inside a person she's spent years carefully crafting.

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.

Finally, When Joy Came to Stay is the story of one woman's battle against depression and the secrets of her past." --Karen Kingsbury
