Kate Callison is just trying to become the permanent head ER director at Austin Grace Hospital, while struggling to overcome a painful secret from her past. Wes Tanner is a search and rescue worker fighting to understand why his mother abandoned him in the middle of the woods when he was young.
I've read another of Candace Calvert's books, Trauma Plan, so I was excited to learn more about Kate Callison in this book. I was intrigued from the get-go, and really enjoyed reading it. Though, sometimes I found myself frustrated with Kate's "prickley" attitude! This is a great, quick read and I love how Calvert ties in a lot of secondary characters. Plus, who wouldn't love to read about charming Wes Tanner? Definitely recommend.

So, if you've been around the blog for a while, you know I love to read, and I post a lot of book reviews. Here's another one! This one is a little different though; it's a collection of 3 books all put into one. A Kingsbury Collection by Karen Kingsbury features Where Yesterday Lives, When Joy Came to Stay, and On Every Side.
Where Yesterday Lives is the story of writer Ellen Barrett, who returns to her hometown after the death of her father. Her marriage is on the rocks, and her family is falling apart at the seams.
When Joy Came to Stay features Maggie Stovall, the woman who has it all together, or so it seems. After a series of events, Maggie checks herself into a mental hospital and tells her husband she wants a divorce. Joy is a young girl in foster care who has endured terrible things and just wants to meet her mother.
On Every Side is the story of Faith Evans, a well known newscaster who fights to save the 100 year old statue of Jesus that stands in her hometown park. Jordan Riley is a bitter lawyer who is determined to tear it down.
I enjoyed reading all three stories, though the first two were more interesting to me than the last. For some reason, I just did not connect with Jordan or Faith in On Every Side, and found myself wishing I could simply skip to the end. I did enjoy the book though, and would recommend it.
