The Muir House is the first book I have read from Mary DeMuth and I found it very enjoyable and had a hard time putting it down. This is a page turner from page one and I couldn't wait to find out what happens. This book is considered a romance, but I found it to be so much more. It deals with healing, relationships, and moving forward.
Willa Muir is constantly haunted by the words "You'll find home one day. Sure as sweet teas on a hot afternoon."
Willa ran from home to Seattle the first chance she got, but has been desperately searching for a missing memory, a missing year of her life. She just can't seem to connect the dots and is haunted by the same dreams from a time when she was four years old. She starts to think she has found a home with Hale, her boyfriend, but when he proposes she runs back to Rockwall, TX her childhood home.
It is in Rockwall that she is helping convert her childhood (a funeral home) into a beautiful, eclectic in style Inn. While she is here she runs into her old boyfriend, Blake who helps her on her quest to discover the secret that her family desperately tried to hide. Will Willa find her missing memory? Will she finally find home? Will she fill the hole that is missing in her life?
This book was provided to me free from the publisher, Zondervan,in exchange for my honest review.
