On a rainy spring day in Seattle, young software tycoon Micah Taylor receives a cryptic, twenty-five-year-old letter from a great uncle he never knew. It claims a home awaits him on the Oregon coast that will turn his world inside out. Suspecting a prank, Micah arrives at Cannon Beach to discover a stunning brand new nine-thousand square foot house. And after meeting Sarah Sabin at a nearby ice cream shop, he has two reasons to visit the beach every weekend.

When bizarre things start happening in the rooms of the home, Micah suspects they have some connection to his enigmatic new friend, Rick, the town mechanic. But Rick will only say the house is spiritual. This unnerves Micah because his faith slipped away like the tide years ago, and he wants to keep it that way. But as he slowly discovers, the home isn't just spiritual, it's a physical manifestation of his soul, which God uses to heal Micah's darkest wounds and lead him into an astonishing new destiny. "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 "A wonderful book . . . Since I began reading it, I've been captivated. It isn't often that a book pulls me so deeply into the fictive dream that I dream about it at night." --Terri Blackstock, author of Predator and Intervention Winner, Best Inspirational Novel of 2010 --RT BOOK REVIEWS Reviewers' Choice Awards

display_description "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.
