Set This House in Order: A Romance of Souls Summary


How do you escape from a house full of ghosts, when the house is inside your head? An acclaimed young novelist delivers an original and revelatory story about a man who suffers from multiple personality disorder. While Andrew Gage deals with the world around him, over a hundred other souls share an imaginary house inside his head, struggling to maintain an orderly coexistence: Aaron, the father-figure, who makes the rules; Adam, the mischievous teenager, who breaks them; Jake, the frightened little boy; Aunt Sam, the artist; and Gideon, the dark soul, who wants to get rid of Andrew and the others and run things on his own. In short, Andrew Gage serves as the everyday public face of a young man with a broken mind, haunted by the ghosts of his past. Andrew's new coworker, Penny Driver, is also a multiple personality -- a fact that Penny is only partially aware of. When several of Penny's personalities ask Andrew for help, he reluctantly agrees, setting in motion a chain of events that threatens to destroy the stability of his house. Now Andrew and Penny must work together to uncover a terrible secret that Andrew has been keeping from himself: the reason why his young mind shattered into pieces in the first place...
