My Father's House by Rose Chandler Johnson


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.

My Thoughts:
First Fiction novel by Rose Chandler Johnson is a wowzer! First, she is definitely a risk taker and takes a topic of marriage that many authors don't take and deals with it in a fiction way. Second, this is a self-published book, which gives me even more respect for her writing because it was well edited in my opinion. This book is very engaging, it leaves the reader with asking a question about what they would do if they found themselves in this position and it also is a very unique read like any other. I highly recommend this read and give this 5/5 stars!
