“The Stories an Old House Can Tell”: a touching novel that recounts the riveting memories within the walls of the author’s house that reveal purposeful lives and unbreakable bonds. “The Stories an Old House Can Tell” is the creation of published author Shirley McEntire, a first-time writer and a retired teacher in the public school system who is involved in her church and volunteers at Pink & Pearls Foundation, a breast cancer charity in the Richmond area.

McEntire shares, “‘The Stories an Old House Can Tell’ came about as I traveled down the country roads and saw old houses. Imagining the people who lived, worked, and played there, I began thinking it would be fun if our house can tell my family’s story. Thus began my journey to have the house we lived in for thirty-eight years remember and describe its thoughts and memories of all the people who lived and played within its walls. As you read, you will laugh and marvel at a house in the woods that thinks and recalls our lives, adventures, and experiences.

“The book was written mostly for my family to look back at their past and for you, the reader, to enjoy.

Writing this book where the house tells stories has been one of my most enjoyable experiences. It has helped each of us realize the virtues of living, playing, and sharing life through good and bad times.

“As you pass old houses, let your mind wander through their possible stories. Hopefully, as you read, you will use your imagination to recall your family’s experiences and think about what stories your house will tell about you and your family.

“While reading my book, you will discover the many unexpected visitors that made our home their home. There was even someone from the past who frequently surprised the family with visits.

“Please sit back and enjoy the true and exciting experiences our old house tells in an imaginative way.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Shirley McEntire’s new book brings the readers on a sentimental ride through time by looking into the lives of those who lived in an extraordinary home and formed relationships that stood the test of time.
