What would you find if you walked into the rooms of your soul?
One man is about to find out.
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 heads for Cannon Beach intending to sell the house and keep his past buried, but the nine thousand square-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 get-away.
But strange things begin to happen in the house. Things Micah can’t explain. Things he can barely believe. All the locals will say is the house is “spiritual.” Unsettling, since Micah’s faith slipped away like the tide years ago, and he’s determined to keep it that way.
Then he discovers the shocking truth: the home isn’t just spiritual, it’s a physical manifestation—of his soul—forcing him to choose if he’ll risk everything to see what waits for him deep within the house’s rooms.

–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.”

“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.”
