Publisher Comments:

A timeless classic is reborn! From Betty Smith — author of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, one of the most beloved novels of the past century — comes an unsentimental yet radiant and powerfully uplifting tale of young hearts and marriage.

In 1927, in Brooklyn, New York, Carl Brown and Annie McGairy meet and fall in love. Though only eighteen, Annie travels alone halfway across the country to the Midwestern university where Carl is studying law — and there they marry. But their first year together is much more difficult than they anticipated, in a faraway place with little money and few friends. With hardship and poverty weighing heavily upon them, Annie and Carl come to realize that their greatest sources of strength, loyalty and love, will help them make it through.

Review:

“A glad affirmation that love can accomplish the impossible.” Chicago Tribune

Review:

"Weeping, laughing, raging, exulting....Intensely emotional....Inspired." New York Times

Synopsis:

Joy in the Morning is the magnificent million-copy bestseller of young love and marriage by Betty Smith, beloved author of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Tomorrow Will Be Better, and Maggie-Now. In 1927 Brooklyn, teenagers Carl Brown and Annie McGairy meet and fall in love. Through hardship and poverty, their commitment perseveres, and soon they realize that their greatest sources of strength, loyalty, and love will help them make it through, together. Joy in the Morning is, in the words of Best Sellers, “a human-hearted song of joy” from the immortal Betty Smith.

Joy in the Morning is one of my favorite books. It's the story of a young couple, Annie and Carl, who marry and then move to a college town so that he can attend law school. They struggle for a while, make new friends, support each other, and find their place in the world. If you like A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by the same author, you'll like this book, too!
