The House at Rose Creek

Kate Sinclair has built a happy life for herself in Atlanta, but she's cut herself off from her family. Kate's parents died when she was a child and she was raised by her aunt Mary. But as she grew up, work not family became the most important and Kate has missed things that she never should have missed, including her cousin's husband's funeral. But when Aunt Mary dies and Kate knows that she must go home to Rose Creek to honor the woman who raised her as her own, she's nervous. Will she be able to fix her the mistakes that she regrets? As she spends more time in Rose Creek for the reading of the will, and realizes that Aunt Mary has left her the old family home, Kate becomes more and more attached to the slower life of life in Rose Creek. She even meets a man that she is very attracted to, Andrew. Kate begins to clean her new home out and finds a journal of one of her several great-grandfathers and realizes that life is not all about work and that she needs to be spending more time with her family. Things just seem to be fitting together, especially when she meets two missionaries from the LDS Church, that church just seems to make sense. Her family is concerned with her growing interest in a religion that isn't their own and Kate begins to feel lost yet again. Will she be able to find her way to peace with both her family and her religion?

This was a great book! I really liked Kate from the very beginning of the book. I liked that she was willing to try to fix mistakes that she had made, even though she knew that it was going to be very hard. I liked that she had the courage to go and try, and that even when life tried to knock her down, she was able to get back up and keep going. I liked the bit of romance that this book held, it was just enough. Kate's journey should serve to remind us all of what's important in life and what we should be striving for.

I won a copy of this book in a contest.
