Maggie Stovall is trapped inside a person she's spent years carefully crafting. Now the truth about who she is--and what she's done--is bursting to the surface and sending Maggie into a spiral of despair. Will Maggie walk away from her ten-year marriage and her responsibility as a foster mother in her desperate desire to escape the mantle of depression that is cloaking her? Or will she allow God to take her to a place of ultimate honesty--before it's too late? When Joy Came to Stay is the heart-wrenching story of one woman's escape from the shadows of clinical depression. Bestselling author Karen Kingsbury offers this moving tale of the quest for a simple, transparent life lived in the sunlight of God's favor and forgiveness.
