My Father's House
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 thoughts: This is an excellent story! Rose writes in an engaging manner that keeps the story moving along at a fast pace. There is a bit of language in this story, but I felt like it was justified due to the character of the person who used it. While this is the story of an abusive relationship, it is also one of hope and finding peace when away from that relationship. The only thing I wasn't thrilled about was that the main character didn't avoid the appearance of jumping into another relationship when she was still married. I know I am being picky though.:) Otherwise, the story was excellent!
I received this book through Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
