"It was just a letter. Cryptic, yes. Absurd? Absolutely. But Seattle software tycoon Micah Taylor can't get it out of his mind--this claim that a home was built for him, by a great uncle he never knew, on the Oregon coast. In Cannon Beach. The one place he loves. The one place he never wants to see again. Micah goes to Cannon Beach intending to sell the house and keep his past buried, but the nine thousand sqaure-foot home instantly feels like it's part of him. Then he meets Sarah Sabin at the local ice cream shop... Maybe Cannon Beach can be a perfect weekend getaway. But strange things happen in the house. Things Micah can't explain. Things he can barely believe. All the locals will say is that the house is 'spiritual.' Unsettling, since Micah's faith slipped away like the tide years ago. And then he discovers the shocking truth: the home isn't just spiritual, it's a physical manifestation. Of his soul. Will Micah run--or will he risk everything to see what waits for him deep within the house's rooms?"--P. [4] of cover.… (more)

What would you find if you walked into the rooms of your soul? Micah is about to find out. Many happenings shaped him when he was younger. He left his God & filled is life with money etc. But thru letters of a deceased uncle, his life is to change. Spiritual warfare - a creative way to help you search for where your heart really is.

Took me a while to get through this. It started off pretty good and it didn’t have a bad ending it just seems to drag on. It is Christian fiction, and quite different from others I’ve read. ( )

Amazing book about a man who has been out of touch with God for way too many years. This book is about him going on a spiritual change in his life and making choices and changes to give all of himself to God. An absolutely amazing read. ( )

Micah Taylor is a successful software entrepreneur with a perfect business partner/girlfriend, a twenty-first floor penthouse in Seattle, and millions in the bank. But a letter from his Great-Uncle Archie unnerves him: his uncle has built a house for him in Cannon Beach, a place he once loved, a place he has no desire to ever visit again. But the letter intrigues him and he heads off to see the house . . . if it does indeed exist. He’s determined to sell it and return to his perfect Seattle life.

Micah is stunned by what he finds. Nine thousand square feet, designed and furnished exactly as Micah might have done if he’d built it himself. Weird, Micah thinks, but his resolve to sell the house remains . . . until mysterious rooms start appearing and disappearing, throwing his life into turmoil.

Micah thinks he’s going crazy but his new friend, Rick, tells him the house is spiritual and encourages him to talk about his experiences. As the story progresses, it becomes clear that Micah is being given a rare opportunity to explore the direction his life will take if he stays in Seattle or if he stays in Cannon Beach. With either choice, he is given the ability to see what he will gain . . . and what he will lose.

Firmly based in Christian faith, this spiritual tale focuses on Micah’s journey to discover how the choices he makes will affect his life. As he wrestles with the difficulties of discovering what truly lies within his heart, he comes to understand what is essential and important in his life . . . and what he needs to do to obtain it.

Highly recommended. ( )

I was drawn to this novel by the cover - Yes, I'll freely confess!
Not unwillingly, as this book is a stunner.
James Rubart's debut took me on a mind bending adventure I desired
nothing but to learn "what happens next?" One word description?

Riveting!

A mind bender that intensely engaged my emotions. Rubart is a masterful storyteller. Believable characters. Believable relationships.
Unbelievable scenarios of intrigue and suspense.

MC, Micah Taylor, makes life changing decisions without grasping the potential impact on present and future. Challenging to the reader as we follow his progress, alternately cheering or holding our breath. Relational connections we want to see happen -
others we're wanting to warn him of. But... are we right?

An inheritance that subliminally fulfills his every wish?
A dream come true ? or a doorway into deception ?
Substantial ethical, relational, and spiritual challenges
for Micah and for us as we reflect on the situations portrayed.

Stunning outcomes with ever increasing twists of mental prowess
kept me invested to the end. The ripple effect lasted much longer...

NOT to be missed!
Quotes:

“You don't have to own something for it to be you. Haven't you ever gone into a gallery and seen a painting and said 'that's me'. Or had a piece of music capture something deep down you didn't even know was there? You realize it's always been part of youl you've just never heard it before.”
―'Rooms' James L. Rubart

“Utterly engulfed,
And wanting more.
Buried,
Drowned,
Intoxicated,
With the vastness of love.
Losing myself as the waves wash over me,
Through me,
Surrounding me,
Caught up in the a hurricane of overwhelming peace,
I have let go,And He has found me.”
― James L. Rubart, Rooms

Epigraph
What can you ever really know of other people's souls--of their temptations, their opportunities, their struggles? One soul in the whole creation you do know: and it is the only one whose fate is placed in your hands.
--C. S. Lewis
Dedication
For Darci
First words
Why would a man he never knew build him a home on one of the most spectacular beaches on the West Coast?
Quotations
Information from the German Common Knowledge. Edit to localize it to your language.
"Liebst du Bücher?", fragte Micha.
Sie nickte leicht. "Wenn du mir fünftausend Dollar geben und sagen würdest, dass ich damit machen kann, was ich will, würde ich schnurstracks in einen Buchladen gehen."
"Wie viele Kinder willst du?"
...
"Drei. Einen Jungen, ein Mädchen und eins, das sich selbst aussuchen darf, was es werden will."
Die Bibel sagt, dass das Wort unseres Fusses Leuchte ist. Kein grosser Scheinwerfer oder eine mit Flutlicht erhellte Landebahn, auf der wir ein Flugzeug landen könnten. Geh deshalb einen Schritt nach dem anderen. Im Moment versuchst du verzweifelt herauszufinden, wo dein Weg endet. Aber du musst den Glauben aufbringen, alles aus der Hand zu geben und Gott zu überlassen, dass er dir zu seiner Zeit enthüllt, was er vorhat.
