From Betty Smith, author of the beloved American classic A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, comes an unsentimental yet radiant and uplifting tale of young love 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 Carl and Annie’s first year together is much more difficult than they anticipated as they find themselves in a faraway place with little money and few friends. With hardship and poverty weighing heavily upon them, they come to realize that their greatest sources of strength, loyalty, and love, will help them make it through.  A moving and unforgettable story, Joy in the Morning is “a glad affirmation that love can accomplish the impossible.” (Chicago Tribune)

“A glad affirmation that love can accomplish the impossible.” Chicago Tribune
“An artful and engaging novel…Certain to touch many hearts.” New York Times
“Annie is an enormously appealing character, made even more so by Reed’s evocative performance. Her curiosity, charm, and independence come through in Reed’s inviting tone and light Irish accent…While often nostalgic feeling, the audiobook contains a modern element with its frank depictions of sexuality…This classic audiobook is a joy…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
