About the book:

My Father's House (March 2016)

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 Review:
"My Father's House" is a multi-layered read that will stay with you long after you finish the book.  This is Rose Chandler Johnson's latest book and it is filled with heart, romance and suspense.  Lily Rose grew up with her father and his love and when he passed away her world was changed.  Lily struggled with her mother's mental health issues and her detachment from Lily's life.  Lily's bond with her father was the one thing that grounded her in life and she thought she had found what she needed when she got married.  However, the honeymoon bliss was over quite quickly.  This book addresses quite a few issues that are sometimes just glossed over and not really discussed or addressed as they can be uncomfortable.  Rose explores these issues in Lily Rose's life and how she must decide what is best for herself.  Rose writes in such a way that the reader is immediately drawn into the story and into the characters' lives.  I love how the characters' strengths are highlighted and the roles they play in Lily's life.  I highly recommend this read.
