Down Two Paths
READERS' FAVORITE 5 STAR REVIEW
(Between Two Doors, Book 1)
"Between Two Doors by Taya DeVere is the first entry in the Borderline series, an engrossing story that follows a Scandinavian girl as she is faced with difficult choices after the death of her father. She can choose to return home to the familiar places of her life and unhappy relationships or undertake a new adventure to the unknown in a foreign land.
Taya DeVere opens the story by introducing a powerful and emotional moment. The protagonist is at the hospital, witnessing her father’s last days. “My dad’s dead. Well, actually, he’s still breathing, right there in the corner of this room, but not for long, according to the doctors.” The narrative is poignant, evocative, and unveils strong emotions. The emotional intelligence and depth of character give the narrative its unusual strength. The novel explores existential themes and delves deeper and deeper into a human soul in search of balance. The narrative begins with a powerful dilemma, two doors literally opening up for the protagonist, and in that fleeting moment she has to make a choice. It is in this choice, in this dilemma, that the author builds the tension and nourishes the conflict.
The writing presents vivid and insightful descriptions, allowing readers to easily imagine scenes and form ideas of places. Written in an engrossing first person narrative, Between Two Doors is captivating, cinematic, and utterly delightful. A book with a protagonist that reflects something readers share — humanity. It kept me awake through the night."
“I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life's a bitch. You've got to go out and kick ass.”
