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:
I first encountered Johnson's writing when I read God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea: Experiencing God in the Midst of Everyday Moments.  I was really excited to hear of her debut novel My Father's House.  Johnson is a writer to be followed!  She has written an emotionally charged novel with well-developed characters.  I won't be forgetting Lily Rose Cates any time soon.  Johnson reminds readers through this story that even when all goes wrong, the Lord is ever faithful with mercy and grace new every morning.
