The House on Prospect by Bernadette Walsh
Links to Buy:
Ellen Murphy spent her childhood in an idyllic house by the sea. A house surrounded by flower filled gardens and a white picket fence. A house she fled at eighteen. A house full of secrets.
When Ellen’s mother Rose, an ex-nun, is diagnosed with terminal cancer, Ellen reluctantly returns home to care for her and uncovers a clue to the one secret that has haunted Ellen all her life: the identity of her father. But that is just one of the many secrets hidden behind the beautiful facade of the house on Prospect Road. Ellen discovers the high price both her mother and her Irish grandmother paid for the house on Prospect and she realizes that her meek mother is more of stranger to her than her absent father.
When I started reading The House on Prospect and I didn’t get up until I was done. I felt like I was a part of the lives of these wonderful characters and I did not want to leave.
This is an easy but emotional read. I could see these characters as well as I can see my own family. I was touched by the emotions I felt so much that several times I had tears falling to my cheeks. Bernadette Walsh has created a place that feels so real, it is amazing.
If you are looking for a moving story about family, life, love and death; this is it. I highly recommend The House on Prospect and I give it 5 Smiles.
