Publisher's Summary

After the death of their only child, it was time for Virginia and Richard to truly act on the power held within the five stones.

But their healing was taking a long time, and, quite frankly, proving to be an empty vessel needing to be filled.

Would they ever have a child of their own?

Would the old key help in their search for the truth? Joy was in their lives once again, a homeless teen with an alcoholic mother, still managing the journey to Just Desserts for another pink cupcake.

Was Joy the answer? And if so, what was the truth locked within her heart?

Travel with Virginia and Richard as they make their journey with God. Seek. Knock. Open. Find. Discover for yourself how an open heart heals.

    "Love the series!"

    I loved this book. The Gift is the 3rd in the series and now I am so involved with these characters that I feel like I am part of their lives. The Gift is very well written, the characters are well developed, and I felt as though I were right there with them. I especially love the Christian values and the way that they are brought out in the story. Just by listening to Virginia talking to God made me feel closer to Him. Kathryn Elizabeth Jones is now one of my favorite Christian authors and Nancy Peterson is one of my favorite narrators. She gives such a beautiful voice to the characters that I could listen to her all day - and I have listened for several hours! I highly recommend this series!
    I was given a copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

    "The best on in the series!"

    I have read all three now and I think this was my favorite! This was was more emotionally charged. It was very heartfelt, a little sad and a bit of suspense to it. I think Kathryn's writing just keeps getting better and better.


    I found this story to be so much more interesting than the others. I listened to the audible version, and had it on while I was on my new exercise bike. I was so distracted while listening I biked 5 mi.! This time around I was very emotionally invested in the characters and what happened to them. I think it was the addition of Joy. She was a part of the last book but was more of a main character in this one. I just loved her and the story of her relationship with her mom. Hey Kathryn - hint hint - I would love to see a series about a grown-up Joy! That would be good huh? LOL


    If you are looking for a great christian series that will definitely keep your interest (and you might learn something in the process) - this one is for you!


    Thank you Kathryn for sending me your latest book for my honest review! Keep 'em coming!

    Story
    "Good story but could have been fleshes out more."

    I was confused in a few places with the stones and the friend Paul. With sequel it is important to me to have some back story included so you understand where these things fit in and what there purpose is. I did not find that in this story. Also it would have been nice to have more information abut the characters, what are the reasons they are in the situation they find themselves. The friendship between the mother and daughter and the old man? I felt it needed much more depth.
