My Father's House by Rose Chandler Johnson *Review

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:
Lily was looking for love, and had hoped she had found it. Her mother was caught in a world of her past, and Lily certainly wasn't finding love there. Her husband however had a different persona than what he portrayed when he first met her. She soon found out his true colors and that frightened Lily. She was trapped at home, trying to find love from a love less marriage. She didn't have much choice but to flee, and thankfully she was able to go to her Aunt's house in Georgia, family that her husband didn't know of.
I read this book on vacation and it was hard to put it down to spend time with the family! I do wish that there may have been an option for Manny to get help. The perfect ending if you will, but that isn't how life works itself out.
