Home by Michael D Golvach explores the relationship of control between two siblings. Alexis Woods’ brother controls her life in a very jealous manner and he makes sure that she is untouched by other men. Being a control freak, his actions are about to put Alexis in mortal danger. Her best friend steps in, exposing a deep secret to save Alexis, but by so doing puts both his and Alexis’ life in more danger than anticipated. When the story begins, the protagonist is introduced and readers learn that Alexis tacitly allows herself to be controlled by her brother, Marlon. The reader also learns about the similarities she has with Charles. The comparison made between her and Charles arouses the reader’s curiosity and makes them want to find out what happens to the two characters. Will they be in a relationship or is Marlon going to come between them? The answers are interesting.
Home is filled with magical realism and an atmosphere that is evocative of the deep spirituality of love. Character development is impeccable and the themes of love, family, and friendship are well developed in this novel. Alexis doesn’t want an easy love. The reader is keen to find out if she can find this quality of love in a man and if her brother will allow that love to grow. The writing is strong and beautiful and I enjoyed how the author explores the characters. Home is transporting, taking readers home to the hearts of the characters and following a conflict that is far deeper and stronger than it seems from the start. Michael D Golvach gets the reader’s attention and ensures it stays on the pages of this book until the exhilarating climax. This novel satisfies on every level—from the gorgeous writing to the emotional intensity of the story, from the twists in the plot to the compelling characters.
