Book Review: My Father's House

A book was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

About the book:

Growing up, life is idyllic for Lily Rose Cates due to one constant --- her father's love.

But in her sixteenth summer, all that changes without warning. There begins Lily's struggle to find herself and the life she's lost. . . . Marriage promises fulfillment, but her happily-ever-after barely survives the honeymoon. Her husband's sophisticated fa├žade hides a brooding man with even darker secrets.

When all illusions shatter, Lily must make hard choices --- abandon her husband or risk losing much more than her marriage. She flees their home in Detroit and sets out on a fearful journey to a house in Georgia that her husband knows nothing about. This is one woman's compelling tale of love and survival as she finds her way back home to who she's meant to be . . . in her father's house.

About the author:

Rose Chandler Johnson is the author of the award winning devotional God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea: Experiencing God in the Midst of Everyday Moments. My Father's House is her first novel. She happily makes her home near Augusta, Georgia.

My Opinion

This book was a book that made me feel the full gamut of emotions. At the beginning of Lily's journey into love, her heartbreaking story had me in tears, hurting along with Lily, urging her to get help. And then as the story progresses, my heart heals with Lily, encourages her and gets excited for her  new life!

The author Johnson has done an amazing job of weaving a story that has stayed with me long after I finished the last page of this book. It is written so well with so much emotion - I had to finish it as fast as I could just to see how Lily's life will turn out!
