Crying For Joy By Sarah Barrett
Sarah has captured step by step the true essence of what life has meant for Maggie Duffy, her negative life experiences, and the outcome has left Maggie crying in her heart.
Frustration, abandonment, and betrayal are some of the words that ring out.  Sarah has allowed her readers to look inside the life of a child abandoned,as a young mother abandoned and a family divided.
The hurt one can only imagine as one goes from page to page looking for that turn in the road, instead all one finds is that turbulence
that throws Maggie from one crisis to another, yet she is not yielding and shows true grit, though at times she has questioned the presence of God, and why His Almighty hand did not strike down those like the Mistress of the orphanage.
This book carries mystique,while describing such turpitude that one would wish never to be involved with.  There are so many characters each with their own agenda, and as the book nears the end one can only heap lashings of appreciation on Sarah for bringing fiction into something that rings a bell with real life victims today-this is not yesterday`s story as much as tomorrow`s news.  this book has been written with dignity, clarity and generosity of spirit...Rose

.Thanks Sara.....These are a few of my recent publications...Titanic - Voices In The Dark...Confessions of Father John Energy, demand and New Findings Thanks again- my pen name is Doctor Rosaleen O`Brien
SYNOPSIS  OF  TITANIC - VOICES  IN  THE  DARK...
This book has been written as a dedication to all who survived the sinking of the Titanic and to all relatives and friends of those who lost their lives when she sank.  Rosaleen has written in such a cohesive manner that it feel as if one is a passenger on the Titanic on that night when the world stood still and so many lives were lost.  Reading one finds that stories of dedicated couples are almost beyond belief, not only had they promised to stay united in life but they made a decision to die together, this was the ultimate sacrifice - true love knows no bounds.  Rosaleen is not new to writing in verse, an invitation to visit the White House some time ago was the result of her entering a poetry competition, other awards are too numerous to mention.  This Best Selling author has traveled  the world and sometimes faced situations that could have meant certain death so she understands what it meant when the Captain on the Titanic shouted` Now everyman save himself`

 Psychological Thriller in New Fiction [/font]
“Crying for Joy ” is about a missing child and how her return triggers off a stream of tragedies. [/font]

 [/font]
Excerpts from “Crying for Joy Book One.”--His body was found in a run-down house used by vagrants. It wasn’t the bottle in his hand that interested the police. It was the bullet in his head. The news of the murder sent shock-waves through the community. Some people prayed it wasn’t a return to the bad old days. Those who had known him said it was a terrible thing to happen but behind closed doors they said — the [censored] was never liked by anybody anyway.”[/font]
“The house on the Antrim Road had been a fashionable one in Victorian times. The steps that led down from the street to the basement were enclosed with iron railings. The gate at the top of the steps was locked. At the bottom, blocking the door to the basement, the body of a woman lay in the shameless sprawl of death.”[/font][/font]
Skillfully written, highly imaginative, extremely interesting, “Crying for Joy” offers a clever idea, with gripping narrative that is easy to get into and laced with satire. This book is very well written and offers a plot that is extremely complicated with lots of exciting twists and unpredictable turns. For more Feedback on the sale of this book, contact Sarah 90879952
