After suffering the loss of his mother and separation from his sister and the girl he loved, Jordan Riley fills the holes in his soul with anger. But Faith Evans begins to disassemble the walls around Jordan 's heart, and he realizes there's something very familiar about her… Everything Is on the Line ...for Faith Evans, an up-and-coming newscaster. A woman of honor and integrity, who finds herself making a stand against the one man she never imagined would be her enemy... ...for Jordan Riley, a powerful attorney dedicated to fighting for human rights and against God. A man still reckoning with the boyhood loss of the three women who once meant everything to him... ...for Bethany, Pennsylvania, a small town no one ever dreamed would become the center of national attention. But it has. All because of a beloved, hundred-year-old statue of Jesus Christ that stands in Bethany's park. A statue that some say is a clear violation of separation of church and state. A statue that has to come down. A statue that suddenly becomes the focus of a bitter conflict-one rife with political intrigue, social injustice, and personal conflicts. Before it's over, everything that Jordan and Faith and the town of Bethany stand for will be challenged. Will love be enough when the battle rages on every side? Story Behind the Book "Each of my novels is a piece of my heart.Where Yesterday Liveswas 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 Sidesheds light on the struggle for religious freedom in today's climate; something I am passionate about. Finally,When Joy Came to Stayis the story of one woman's battle against depression and the secrets of her past." -Karen Kingsbury

I very much enjoy Karen Kingsbury's writings. Amazing how a group of people are so afraid of a loving God that they fear and try to get rid of anything that smacks of Christianity. Society would not survive without the basic laws, which, when looked at, are straight out of the Bible.

I am a huge fan of Karen Kingsbury, and have been for many years. I thoroughly loved the Redemption, Firstborn, and Sunrise series as well as many of the stand alone titles. But this particular book, for some reason i can not place, was so much more than the others. God seems to be even more prominent in "On every side" then Karen's other novels, which was a pleasant surprise! Overall, a great and powerful book that has definitely taught me a lesson in faith.
