My New Book - Reap
By marilynbennett, Jul 27 2018 11:08AM
I set out to write another romance novel, but as time moved on I ended up writing a book that was also about love in general.
One of the keys things I wanted to explore was the way in which our culture directs us to require a sense of belonging, as opposed to one of responsibiity. This can often separate us rather than bring us together. I started from the basis that if we only really belong to ourselves we would become guests on the planet and in other people's lives, which is something the main character eventually comes to terms with in the novel.
I also wanted to look at how we struggle to adapt to new places, people and ideas. It can often be deeply painful experiences that result in a process of transformational change, that is ultimately rewarding and stops us from taking life and each other for granted.
The book is currently on Netgalley. I really hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have writing it.
Thank you for stopping by!
