In a move that shocks nineteenth-century Philadelphia society, wealthy widow Laina Brighton turns her grand house into an orphanage for homeless children. Staid and stuffy teas quickly give way to peals of happy laughter echoing through the stately halls. With the support of handsome doctor Thaddeous Allen, Laina is determined to give these waifs a better life, despite the malicious gossip that surrounds them. As these two crusaders, bound by honor and courage, create a future for the forgotten, they change the course of their own futures in ways they never imagined. Along the way, they make a felicitous discovery: that sometimes people become a family in their hearts.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A very good read! 13. Oktober 2005
Von Ein Kunde
This book is the long awaited sequel to "Beauty for Ashes" but you can also read it without knowing the first book. The characters are well developed, the story compelling and sweet. Basically the story is about a young widow finding her place in life and it is also a beautiful story of life and love situated in 19th century Philadelphia. If you like a good read and funny Christian historical romance you'll love this book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful Christian fiction 29. Oktober 2005
Von Sherri R. Myers - Veröffentlicht auf
Using many of the main characters from her previous book, BEAUTY FOR ASHES, Dorothy Clark now brings us Laina's Story in JOY FOR MOURNING. Lonely and widowed, Laina decides to go visit her brother Justin and his wife in Philadelphia. After buying an empty mansion from Justin, Laina wonders if the empty rooms will ever be filled with children, which is her heart's desire. After learning of the town's need for an orphanage, Laina's purpose in life suddenly seems clear, but who will help her run such a huge endeavor? Could forward-thinking, ahead-of-his-time Dr. Thaddeous Allen be the partner Laina longs for, and the man God has chosen to bring her dreams to reality?

I really had a hard time putting this book down, and kept thinking about it as I was doing other things. Dorothy Clark is a fairly new author and one I will continue to read and enjoy for many years to come. Highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen JOY FOR MOURNING by Dorothy Clark 30. Juli 2005
Von J. Toback - Veröffentlicht auf
BEAUTIFULLY DONE, TOUCHING historical romance. When widowed heroine Laina Brighton turns her house into an orphanage for homeless children with the help and support of local doctor Thaddeous Allen, tongues start wagging in 19th century Philadelphia. Despite all odds, this courageous duo forges on, giving these forgotten little ones medical attention, food and shelter, but more importantly, love and hope for a future. As they work side-by-side helping society's castoffs, they recongize the embers of love burning in their own hearts for one another. Dorothy Clark does an awesome job of writing deep characters with authentic emotions. Highly recommended!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic stuff! A must read! 19. April 2006
Von Michelle Sutton - Veröffentlicht auf
What a wonderful historical! Joy for Mourning wasn't just a romance, but also an inspirational story about a childless woman who wants to help children in need, and a male doctor who desires to serve God by helping the truly helpless. It's God's definition of true religion...taking care of the orphans and the widows. And the author crafted the story in such a unique way. The inspirational element was truly inspirational, and so much a part of the story that it was seemless, yet powerful. I found Joy for Mourning emotionally gripping and tender. The romantic tension was compelling enough to keep me turning the pages, and the characters were very believable. Of course, the best part of all was the happy ending. This has to be one of the most enjoyable and interesting historical fiction novels I've read in years. The author has a fresh voice and wonderful writing style. I'm putting Dorothy Clark on my list of favorite authors as of today.

Family of the Heart, The Law and Miss Mary, Beauty for Ashes, Joy for Mourning, and A Prairie Courtship are all about one family. I’ve read all these books—in that order because that’s the order in which they were published on amazon—and very much enjoyed them. They are suitable for readers of all ages, have well-developed story lines, and are rich in historical/geographical detail, making it easy for me to get into them. I hope I haven’t read the last book about this heartwarming family, and I know I haven’t read the last book by this author!
5.0 von 5 Sternen For the sake of the children 4. Mai 2009
Von Grace Brigette Francis - Veröffentlicht auf
Like book one, this story is set in the rich atmosphere of historical Philadelpia. In essence it's one lonely woman's search for love, but it's so much more than that. Her answers come from places she never expected, while she rediscovers the worth of the faith she abandoned. Her determination do do something about the heart-rending plight of the street children is a true pleasure to read and makes this a lovely story of big-heartedness. Highly recommended.
