Advanced Praise

“I couldn’t put this book down. What a read! If I’m ever in the market for an old house in the South, I’ll be sure to check out its past first.”
Adair Lara, author of Naked, Drunk and Writing

“In House, Ruth Coe Chambers explores love in all its guises, including the possibility that it is eternal and exists beyond the grave. This psychological mystery is a must read for anyone who enjoys a thought-provoking look at people caught in a web of deception beyond their understanding.”
Carol Costello, author of Chasing Grace: A Novel of Odd Redemption

“We southerners embrace history and romance, especially if they’re set in a mysterious old house. Chambers’ novel provides these ingredients, which left me in awe—of the well-crafted mystery and of the setting, a house filled with history and passion.”
Belinda Hulin, author of Roux Memories: A Cajun-Creole Love Story with Recipes

Interviews

Story Circle Book Reviews: Lee Ambrose reviews House on the Forgotten Coast, October 23, 2017

“Ruth Coe Chambers has created characters that are complex, engaging, and unforgettable. The house on the northwest coast is perhaps the most complex and unforgettable character of them all. Chambers paints vivid pictures of the sleepy fishing village of Apalachicola as it grapples with a haunting past and an uncertain future. . . .

“If you like strong characters, tension-filled story lines and a touch of mystery, then this book is for you. If you are looking for a book that is next to impossible to put down, this book is for you. If you enjoy the beauty of small towns, old homes and the stories they harbor, this book is for you.

When you finally come to the last page, I promise you that the story and its characters will remain with you.”
