Goodreads | nikkia authement (Chauvin, LA)’s review of This House is Mine

31193713

This House is Mine by Doerte Hansen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thanks St. Martin’s Press and netgalley for this ARC.

The themes of this novel are universal. Anyone who has ever lived with their mother-in-law will relate to this novel so much. Also, after hurricane rita I had to live with family because my house flooded so I know how it is to have to depend on someone else for a place to live. Being a war refugee is a lot different but I still related to the feelings in the book. Families come together unconsciously , not by choice- it’s amazing how this book captures that.

This book scores points on all sides. The present and past bounce off each other and only make sense together. The best novel I’ve read about Salem in a long time.

The most awesome space opera series ever! This series is the top of the line in it’s genre. I cannot stress enough how much you will love it if this is your thing. Even if you don’t usually read this genre you will love it because it’s hard to put it in a square. One of the best love stories of the series- hot does not do it justice.

This is just the kind of saga I’ve always loved. You miss it when it’s over, ponder what might have been or could have happened. This book would make a awesome movie.
