Why did I read this? I read it back it in November and then nominated it for my book group, The Corner Reading Society, and they chose it for next month. I thought I should reread it since I am moderating the discussion.
What is the story? Very successful software mogul Micah Taylor inherits a house on the Oregon Coast from an great uncle he never knew. He leaves his life in Seattle to check out the house, and things begin to happen in his life, things at his new house affects the life he has come to know. Things happen in his spirit that affect his company and his relationships in Seattle. The house has rooms which seem to be various compartments of his past, each of the rooms affect him in very specific ways.
Did I like it? Yes, once again I related to much of the book and to some very specific portions of the story. Again the author has made me look at my own life.
What is with the title of the review? Like Santini and Fields a key part of the story is the relationship between father and son, which is a important relationship to me.
