Updated and revised 3rd edition, author-authorized version.

Ariana and Jean-Marc Perrault have built a wonderful life together in France. They have raised their six children to believe in God and stay close to the Church. Along the way they faced many challenges and relied on their faith to see them through. Now, as the shadows darken around their family once again, they struggle to find strength and comfort in the face of almost unendurable heartache.

Pauline, their adopted daughter, is gravely ill. After sixteen years of hoping and praying for a miracle, how can they bear to let her go? And how can Emeri, Pauline's first love, reconcile such a terrible loss with what she has taught him about the gospel?

Meanwhile, unaware of their sister’s worsening condition, Marie-Thérèse and Josette are in America attending Brigham Young University. Marie-Thérèse is only marking time until she can serve a mission . . . but will the handsome Mathieu change her mind? And beautiful, flighty Josette doesn't know what she wants—until a near tragedy teaches her what is really important in life.

Follow the Perrault daughters as they grow from young women to wives with children of their own, facing and overcoming challenges that will resonate with readers of all ages.

From life's darkest moments to its sweetest joys, author Rachel Ann Nunes skillfully portrays the characters and events that will give you an unforgettable Glimpse of Eternity.

Three Page-Turning Novels in One Volume!

Where Yesterday Lives

Ellen Barrett is a Pulitzer prize-winning journalist with an uncertain marriage, a forgotten faith, and haunting memories of her picturesque hometown and the love she left behind. The eldest of five siblings, she longs for the time, long ago, when they were a happy family. Now Ellen’s beloved father is dead, and she returns to her childhood home to make peace–with the people who still live there, with the losses and changes that time has wrought, and with the future God has set before her.

When Joy Came to Stay

Maggie Stovall is one of the golden people. She has it all together...at least on the surface. Ben Stovall is a godly husband and successful attorney. He has no idea of the darkness about to overtake his life. Amanda Joy is a child of society–abused, broken, thrown away. But her trust in God is still alive. When Joy Came to Stay is the heart-wrenching story of one woman’s descent into the shadows of depression, her husband’s search for understanding, and a precious child’s unwavering faith.

On Every Side

Faith Evans is an up-and-coming newscaster, a woman of honor and integrity who must take a stand against the one man she never imagined would be her enemy. A beloved, hundred-year-old statue of Jesus stands in a small-town park–but some say it’s a clear violation of separation of church and state that must come down. Jordan Riley is a powerful attorney fighting for human rights and against God, but still reckoning with bitter boyhood losses. Amid political intrigue, social injustice, and personal conflicts, will love be enough when the battle rages on every side?

“All–and I do mean all–of Karen Kingsbury’s books have touched my spiritual life in a deep way. I have recommended her books to men and women alike!”
–Debbie, Marana, AZ

“Karen Kingsbury’s Christian fiction is the standard by which I judge all Christian fiction.”

I always cry when I finish one…tears of good-bye to the friends I’ve come to love and tears of thankfulness to my heavenly Father. I can’ t wait to read the next one!”

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. 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.
On a rainy Parisian evening, memories plague Ariana de Cotte. Memories of her beloved twin brother, her estranged parents, and the loneliness and anger that consume her. She is nineteen, it’s her wedding night, and her life seems beyond hope or repair.

Thus begins the story of an extraordinary young woman who, as her life spirals downward, struggles to find meaning and hope in the face of unimaginable suffering. Her bitter refusal to listen to the LDS missionaries only increases her pain, as does blaming God who has allowed her so much heartache. Until one dark night, when her life hits rock-bottom and the Spirit begins its whisperings to her heart.

As you come to know Ariana, you will weep for her tragedy, smile at her small triumphs, rejoice as she embraces a faith that will sustain her, and feel the love of a good man who helps her find the power to change her life forever. Rachel Ann Nunes has created a powerful and moving novel with characters so real that you will let them into your heart and find yourself re-living this exceptional story again and again.

“The last few chapters of this book contain some of the most powerful images of forgiveness and redemption that I’ve seen in any Christian novel. Though the religion of the characters is LDS, this novel should be read by everyone who craves to understand and feel the Savior’s touch in their own lives. Well done!” --Daniel Schroeder, Boston
