Evelyn Machin is an ER surgeon from Los Angeles who saves lives every day. They live over five thousand miles apart, but one night in 2005, they wake up in the same place. Near a house on a wind-swept cliff top. Same souls. Different bodies. Led by two guides, they embark on a journey through the deepest questions of life. Traveling from Rwanda to the Deep South, and from a wreck in the Pacific to the crucifixion, they go in search of answers. Burdened by their own pasts, they discover not only insight but healing and restoration. On return to their earthly bodies, however, two questions torment them. Who do I keep meeting in my dream? And if it’s just a dream, why am I falling in love? Their desperate quest for knowledge—and each other—leads to extraordinary discoveries. About the world. And the meaning of their lives. For fans of C. S. Lewis and The Shack, this book wrestles with the problem of evil through beautifully crafted and imaginative narrative. Unfolding through courtroom drama, love story, and family saga, at its heart is the defense of God in the face of human suffering. Capturing the heights of joy and the depths of sorrow, House of Souls is a story that reveals a deep and unparalleled love—the love of the Father for us in the midst of pain, which he himself knows only too well. Richard Thor Collins is a former freelance journalist with the BBC, producing stories for Radio 4 and the World Service.
