My Father’s House
from tenement to bungalow and back
a fictionalized memoir
Mathew Daniel

In My Father’s House was the original title. I thought this title sounded a bit too religious.
My father and mother were exceptional in the way they helped others. Without being religious, they practiced the essence of Christianity. Along the way, through many difficulties, they had three kids who became professionals, a feat somewhat unheard of for someone from the tenements. I was the youngest, the unplanned one, ten years younger than the oldest. The difficulties I mentioned earlier were mind-boggling, almost unbelievable, and death-defying. It is about my Dad, who passed away when I was 17 when I needed him most. Lost at the crossroads, I inadvertently stepped into the mansions he built for me per Edgar Cayce’s comments on the biblical verse from John 14, from which my title emanates. The story setting takes place in the background of India, simmering with all its vicissitudes.
The book is complete. It is approximately 87000 words.
