My Father's House by Rose 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 façade 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 opinion: This book was very good and was a lot better than I was expecting. it dealt with some really difficult things and at times I certainly did not agree with what the characters did or how the situation was handled but overall it was an engaging story with very, real, flawed characters. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.


  1. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and review my debut novel. I appreciate that so much.
