Tips for Tuesday


It's been quite a while since I've read any fiction, but during some self-imposed rest I brought along "Rooms" by James L. Rubart and I'm so glad I did!
 
 


When looking for fiction, I want something beyond clean entertainment; I'm looking for something edifying.  I found "Rooms" to be entertaining and thought provoking without being as heavy as a non-fiction read.
 
"Rooms" main character, Micah Taylor, is a self-made millionaire in the software business who receives a mysterious letter from his great-uncle Archie.  In it, this man he never knew claims to have built a house for him on Cannon Beach.  Located on the beautiful Oregon coast, Cannon Beach is both a place that Micah loved and a place that he never wants to see again. 
 
Micah goes to the house with the intention of sticking a "For Sale" sign in the yard, never imagining how much he would instantly feel at home there.  He feels as though the house is a part of him; in reality, it is him.  More specifically, it's a reflection of his heart.  Rooms mysteriously appear, reflecting changes he's making in his life.

Micah's journey is a realistic one as he vacillates between two worlds.  The reader has the advantage of seeing how choosing to follow God affects life in the world and vice versa.  I found it to be a great read - hopefully you will too!

Blessings,





Lisa
