The Search for Joyful: A Mrs. Mike Novel Paperback – February 4, 2003
Purchase options and add-ons
When her dear friend O Be Joyful died in a flu epidemic, Mrs. Mike Flanigan opened her home—and heart—to her orphaned child, Kathy Forquet. Over the years, young Kathy delighted in the Flanigans’ love—and suffered the pain of her schoolmates’ prejudice. But as the terrors of World War II drew closer to home, Kathy decided to leave her familiar home and do her part by going to a nursing school in Montreal. There her life fills with drama and excitement as she meets two very different men—a Native American who helps her understand her lost heritage, and a wounded Austrian soldier who shares fascinating stories of his exotic, embattled homeland. And as she learns about herself and the world beyond her hometown, she tries to find the elusive prize she has sought for so long: the meaning of true joy…
Richly detailed and emotionally powerful, The Search for Joyful is the inspiring story of a young woman’s courageous search for fulfillment—and the long-awaited new novel by the authors of the beloved Mrs. Mike, praised by Library Journal as “a book the reader will be unable to put down until the last page is read.”

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I ran across this sequal I was hoping for something at least
half as good as the original. I'm afraid that I was disappointed.
There are sections in the book that were somewhat interesting,
but that interest didn't keep going. Too many characters did not
grow and change. Some were just plain self-centered, and never
seemed able to get past that - even given the supposed life
altering war that they lived through. Some things moved too
slowly. Some things moved too fast. The pacing just didn't seem
right to me in places. And yet I still managed to find just a
touch of something in the story that made me want to finish it
and see how things would turn out. I just wish that the story
all fit together better, and that it moved more smoothly.
