Rooms was an intriguing book. Thought-provoking, heart-warming, and very a solid work of speculative Christian fiction. I’ve heard some call the book “a cross between The Shack and Frank Peretti” and that describes the book better than anything else I could say. If you are looking for a new book to settle down with, I would definitely recommend Rooms. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and it left me thinking for days after I finished.
Here’s the official blurb:
On a rainy spring day in Seattle, young software tycoon Micah Taylor receives a cryptic, twenty-five-year-old letter from a great uncle he never knew. It claims a home awaits him on the Oregon coast that will turn his world inside out. Suspecting a prank, Micah arrives at Cannon Beach to discover a stunning brand new nine-thousand square foot house. And after meeting Sarah Sabin at a nearby ice cream shop, he has two reasons to visit the beach every weekend.
When bizarre things start happening in the rooms of the home, Micah suspects they have some connection to his enigmatic new friend, Rick, the town mechanic. But Rick will only say the house is spiritual. This unnerves Micah because his faith slipped away like the tide years ago, and he wants to keep it that way. But as he slowly discovers, the home isn’t just spiritual, it’s a physical manifestation of his soul, which God uses to heal Micah’s darkest wounds and lead him into an astonishing new destiny.
