This book is a follow-up to Mrs. Mike, but I believe it would stand on it's own as well. It follows the story of an Indian girl adopted by a white couple during the early 1900's and how she finds her place in the worlds of which she's a part. I may have liked this story better than Mrs. Mike, it was wonderful in a different way. Where as Mrs. Mike lived in horrible conditions that presented heart wrenching conflict, Oh Be Joyful's daughter was in search of finding her own peace with the influences in her life. Beautiful story.
