Lose Yourself in A New Romance Story of Redemption and Grace & Book Giveaway!

Do you love romance stories full of redemption and grace? Then you'll want to lose yourself in Rose Chandler Johnson's debut novel, My Father's House. 

"Rose Chandler Johnson has written a story that tugs at your memories and your heart. Even when loving the wrong man creates devastating hurt and pain, she shows you can turn back and God will lead you through the darkness into the light. Take the mistakes, bring good out of bad and lead us back where we belong with those who love us, pour joy in our hearts and give us a new beginning."

--Susan Reichert, Editor-in-Chief, Southern Writers Magazine.

Growing up, life is idyllic for Lily Rose Cates due to one constant – her father’s love. But in her sixteenth summer, all that changes without warning due to her father’s sudden death. From that day forward, Lily struggles to find herself and the happy life she thinks is gone forever.

Marriage to her prince charming promises fulfillment, but their happily-ever-after barely survives the honeymoon. Beneath the sophisticated facade lies a brooding man who hides dark secrets. When all Lily’s illusions of happiness shatter, she must make hard choices – abandon her husband or risk losing much more than her marriage. She flees their home in Detroit and sets out on a fearful journey to a house in Georgia that her husband knows nothing about.. . .

In spite of heartbreak and regrets, will she find the strength to survive whatever comes? Or will her husband find her and shatter all her hopes again? This is one woman’s compelling tale of love and endurance as she finds her way back home to faith and who she’s meant to be . . . in her father’s house.

My Father’s House is Rose’s first novel. Her devotional, God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea: Experiencing God in the Midst of Everyday Moments won the Georgia Author of the Year Finalist Award in 2014. It was also awarded the Selah Finalist Award in the same year. Rose enjoys writing for her blog, Write Moments with God and engaging with her readers. A native Georgia, Rose has lived in a suburb of Augusta for the last 30 years. Before retiring from Georgia’s public school system, Rose taught English and French. She is currently an adjunct English instructor at a community college. In addition to reading and writing, Rose enjoys cooking, sewing, gardening, and spending time with her six children and their growing families. And yes, sweet iced tea is her beverage of choice.

I hope you enjoy reading My Father's House as much as I did! Do you like novels set in the South? If not, where is your favorite setting for a novel? 


  1. I connected with Rose on Facebook. I enjoy novels set in the south.

  2. Hi Jeanette! I remember several best sellers set in the south, of course Gone With the Wind being one of my favorites. As a northern girl, reading about the south is fun, and a real education in a different, slower, sometimes more formal way of life.
    Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy! I'll go say 'hi' to Rose on Twitter!

    1. It was so nice of you to say "hi" on Twitter! I love surprises like that.

  3. Thank you for the info, Jen! It sounds like a wonderful read. Congrats to Rose! Will visit her on FB, etc. Thanks to both of you for sharing and offering the giveaway. :)

    1. You are so welcome Karen. It's our pleasure. Be sure to get your FREE kindle copy as well today.


Oh, it's YOU! I'm so happy to see you here today, and look forward to reading your comments.
