THE MUIR HOUSE
Paperback, 325 pages
Willa was going back home after quite a few years to help get the old funeral home that her Dad and Mom used to run into a bed and breakfast. It belongs to her but she did not have a happy childhood growing up there. It seemed to her as her Mom never loved her but she was a Daddy's girl. There was part of her memory that she could not place so she though maybe by going back she could remember her four year old year.
She took a leave from her job and her current boyfriend that has just given her a ring and went back home. Her Mom was in a nursing home and she had not seem her since the day she left when her Mom told her to leave and to never come back. She had been back once when her Dad died. The place was left in the care of Genie a friend of the family. Genie was the one that was going to run the bed and breakfast and lived in a little studio apartment on the property.
As the story took form I already could read between the lines what her young life had been.
The first part of the book was a good read and I really enjoyed it but the last half to me was a little liking, So I really skipped some of it and got to the end but it didn't happen as I thought it was going too, so Mary DeMuth really had me fooled. It really is a good read and to find out what Willa was wanting to know will surprise you as well.
Thanks to Zondervan Publishing for sending me this book to read and to review.
