The Muir House - Reviewed

Book Description:
'You'll find home one day. Sure as sweet tea on a hot afternoon.'
Words from Willa Muir's sketchy childhood haunt her dreams and color her days with longing, regret, and fear. What do the words mean? Willa is far from sure.

When Hale Landon places a ring on her finger, Willa panics, feeling she can't possibly say yes when so much in her past is a mystery. Bent on sorting out her history, Willa returns to Rockwall, Texas, to the Muir House Bed and Breakfast, a former funeral home.

But the old place holds her empty memory close to itself. Willa's mother utters unintelligible clues from her deathbed, and the caretaker of the house keeps coveted answers carefully protected. Throw in an old flame, and Willa careens farther away from ever knowing the truth.

Set in a growing suburb of Texas, The Muir House explores trauma, healing, love new and old, and the life-changing choices people make to keep their reputations intact.

My Thoughts: Willa is a young woman who is looking for a place to call home, she has secrets locked inside of her that she can't remember. As she begins to search for the secrets to who she is she learns who she is. There is powerful symbolism between the Muir house that Willa is to refurbish and Willa herself. They both are in shambles. My favorite quote from the book is found on page 125 "Let the past sleep, but let it sleep on the bosom of Christ. And go into the irresistible future with Him."

Mary has written a suburb book that will take you on a journey of your own, who do you call home? Is it God, or is it someone or something else? Are you carrying your past around with you, or leaving it with God to let Him take care of. This is an absolutely AWESOME book! I give it 5 lighthouses and shine a light on it for pointing a path to God!!! Way to go Mary!!!!
