In Foundations by Abigail Stewart, the author has taken a simple object such as a house and woven three interesting but very different stories around this house such as the influence each person has on the house itself and how the house makes people change their lives. From the first to the last page of the book, the reader’s curiosity is captured and they find themselves reading without stopping to see what happens not so much to the people in the house but to the house itself. The main characters in this interesting book are Bunny, her sister Rose, her husband, Maria, Emma Johnson, Dr. Herbert, Amanda’s mom and dad, and several others. These colorful characters lead the reader through the house and make the reader root for the house.
Abigail Stewart keeps the reader's attention by using the house as something real and alive, showing how it affects each person's life that lives in and wanders through it. This is an intriguing story about a house and how it draws energy, both negative and positive, into the atmosphere itself. The author has a most profound message for the reader in all three stories which reveals itself at the book's end. I found that my attention was firmly held and I could not put the book down until I had read it completely. It may be a simple book but it has a very real story to tell. Thank you, Abigail, for a very thought-provoking and enlightening read.
