"An extraordinary read. Part "The Screwtape Letters," part "The Shack.""
--Robert Liparulo, best-selling author of "Comes a Horseman"
"A profound spiritual tale spun with imaginative flair. I'm looking forward to more from Jim Rubart."
--James Scott Bell, best-selling author of "Try Fear"
"Unforgettable. The kind of book that is talked about long after the last page has been turned. The universe of readers is richer because of this debut novel."
--Alton Gansky, author of "Enoch" and "Certain Jeopardy"
"Two words about "Rooms": blown away. It's been a long time since I read anything this unique and truly creative, and even longer since a book held me in such rapt attention during the moments I was reading it--and long after."
--Deborah Raney, author of the Clayburn novels

Debut author and professional marketer Rubart has created a suspenseful tale in the vein of Ted Dekker's House, in which inexplicable happenings take over and direct a character's life. Twenty-five-year-old Micah Taylor receives a mysterious letter from a great-uncle he never knew informing him of a home built for him by said uncle. His interest piqued, Micah, a wealthy software company owner, takes off for the Oregon coast to visit his newly acquired 9,000-square-foot house. What he finds is a shape-shifting, mind-boggling revisiting of his past that jeopardizes his future. With only a handful of letters as his guide, Micah tries to summon up the courage to face old wounds that somehow are connected to various rooms in the house itself. As soon as Taylor opens one door, in floods a sea of memories that he must choose to face or run from. Rubart's work clips along nicely, and his premise is compelling. (Apr.)
