With my latest book due to release on February 1, 2014, I'm taking a little stroll down memory lane by sharing a few reviews for Casa de Naomi: The House of Blessing, Book One that has now garnered 42 five star raves.
‘So well written it was hard to put down, I admire the gift this author has the ability to craft a remarkable story that takes the reader to an altogether different place and time. I savored every chapter. All the characters were so real. I enjoyed reading a novel that was clearly a romance novel yet written with impeccable taste’. —Liz Reviews
‘A must read! Casa de Naomi, Book One has to be the most engaging book I have read in years! The characters are so vibrant and alive it is almost as if they are in the room with you. The story captures your heart from the beginning and refuses to release you once the final page is turned! It is as if you are living it right alongside Naomi! These are every day, normal people with the same struggles that many of us face in our day-to-day world, and the author writes them into a very real and imperfect world. I cannot wait to begin reading Book Two!’ —Thora N. Anderson
‘These books are absolutely amazing… from the first page the skill of the writer takes you on a journey you will never forget! I could not put it down and ended up reading Book One in two sittings’. —C. Hills
Want to know what this novel’s about? Please keep reading.
Fifteen-year-old Naomi wants to practice her faith in public, find her uncle, and help him raise enough money to bring their family to America. To accomplish this she agrees to companion a blind, old woman whose family plans to tour Europe and settle in the United States. Her plans are thwarted when the woman passes away aboard ship, and Naomi is handed over to immigration. While she awaits her interview, an old Tía comes to Naomi’s rescue and offers to take her in. With nowhere to go and no one to turn to, Naomi agrees and unwittingly enters the country illegally.
This is Naomi’s journey from adolescence to womanhood, from frightened isolation and captivity to the noble status of heiress with a mission and responsibility many would shirk placed upon her shoulders. Along the way, she contends with piercing memories, hurtful loss, jealous opponents, a devious lawyer, and a curious priest. Through each step of this journey, she guards two secrets she dare not share with anyone, not even Chaz, the man she has married. Will she keep his love when he discovers who she really is? Find out in the first book of Paula Rose Michelson’s saga, The House of Blessing.
