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- Hmm, this one was a very different and somewhat difficult read for me. The story starts off slow and at times I was tempted to put the book down but something kept me reading. About chapter 5 or 6 it really started to pick up. Though fiction novels are my favorite, this one almost sounded more like a memoir, but definitely a good one. Lily Rose is such a good character. At times making you want to tell her where to go or how to respond, while at other times she has such a strength. It made me realize that we can't always control how others respond, but only ourselves. Again, this book deals with a difficult subject of an abusive marriage so please, if that bothers you at all, do not pick this up. The author does a great job at being tactful but sometimes things hurt so I would caution readers to be careful if that might be an issue for you.
