That's the story behind My Father's House by Rose Chandler Johnson
What I Think of The Book
This topic of this book isn't easy to read. Lily has to make a decision when she is faced with abuse. Like so many individuals this isn't an easy decision for her. And I like how the book points this out. I think the story points out just how many individuals get trapped in unhealthy relationships. They are longing for attention. And the person who gives them what they want isn't the person they thought they were.
This book is well written. And the story really flows. And I like that the story tackles a topic that is difficult for many individuals to discuss. I like that the author didn't make Lily into a woman who is perfect after her experiences. She still has room to grow. d
