Action-packed first novel probes for answers to life's questions

In self-published Christian author Rebecca House's tightly crafted debut novel, In the Secret Place of the Most High (paperback, 978-1-60647-315-3; hardcover, 978-1-60647-316-0), she probes for answers to the following questions: Are there second chances in life? Does God care about the concerns of an average person's life? When single mother Eunice's four-year-old son narrowly escapes a fatal accident only to disappear in small, sleepy Candler, she is unwittingly drawn into an enigma. Aided by a troubled student with a mysterious past and an aging mother who lives with her, she embarks on an action-packed adventure full of intrigue, whimsical characters, and wisdom. This harrowing tale of faith in the midst of adversity will resonate with all readers.

Says House, "This novel gives the reader the tools that s/he needs to overcome and recognize the darkness seeking them. Will the hero be able to illuminate the darkness? Will the novel escalate into action scenes of horror and violence? Will the hero be able to rescue a child from that darkness? What dark secret will Sung-ja reveal?"

A global-bred writer with two grown Amerasian children and a Korean-American husband, House writes from what she knows. And what she knows is how the cards in this world can be stacked against those who are different. She knows the plight of a Korean immigrant in America. She knows the difficulties and joys and fears of parenting. She knows that the road to peace for those broken by trauma can be long and arduous. And most of all, she knows how to tap into the power source that overcomes those stacked card decks, as evidenced by her first novel.

Xulon Press, a part of Salem Communications Corporation, is the world's largest Christian publisher, with more than 5,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order In the Secret Place of the Most High through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors.
