The House on Foster Hill by Jaime Jo Wright

Why Couldn’t others understand that keeping memories alive wasn’t a fascination with death? Life was so important. – Ivy, 1906

24169366_10100295850741690_1841016903_oKaine Prescott is no stranger to death. When her husband died two years ago, her pleas for further investigation into his suspicious death fell on deaf ears. In desperate need of a fresh start, Kaine purchases an old house sight unseen in her grandfather’s Wisconsin hometown. But one look at the eerie, abandoned house immediately leaves her questioning her rash decision. And when the house’s dark history comes back with a vengeance, Kaine is forced to face the terrifying realization she has nowhere left to hide.
A century earlier, the house on Foster Hill holds nothing but painful memories for Ivy Thorpe. When an unidentified woman is found dead on the property, Ivy is compelled to discover her identity. Ivy’s search leads her into dangerous waters and, even as she works together with a man from her past, can she unravel the mystery before any other lives–including her own–are lost?

My Review:

Wow! This book captured your attention and wouldn’t let go! I liked this story a lot. I found this novel to be intense, a little dark and serious. I had to stop reading sometimes to give myself a break but I was very interested in finding out what happened. It kept me guessing until the end.  This story dealt with some heavy topics like abuse.  Jaime Jo Wright wrote a compelling story that brings to life issues that our society faces.  I loved how realistic the character’s were. Its hard to pick which main Character, Kaine or Ivy, I liked best.  Throughout this story is a message of hope, light, and forgiveness in Jesus. This quote belong sums it up. I really think that the reader can learn some valuable truths just like Kaine and Ivy did.

“Grant threaded his fingers through hers. “He gives us glimpses now, but His plan for us is so much greater than what we see. That’s the pitfall of humanity. We look at our present circumstances, our trials, even our joys, and believe that this is all there is. But the Lord’s vision is so much broader and stretches into eternity. We limit ourselves by looking at the here and now when hope, real hope, is found in our relationship with Him and the future that Christ went ahead to prepare for.” – The House on Foster Hill

I recommend this book to my family and friends.
