Sarah identifies herself by relationships: sister of, mother of, daughter of, and wife of. Her self-inflicted subjugation to her glamorous sister, Maya Myrrh, the singer, prevents her from being anything but one piece of a greater whole. Different as they seem, Sarah and Maya were forged from the same genes and are bound to one another as few others can claim. But, their attachment and the uncurling jealousy that lies beneath, threatens the stable and normal life that Sarah seeks.
Memorable and touching, Factor incorporates an unruly crew of characters whose exaggerated flaws throw into stark contrast the harsh realities of a relationship’s inter-workings, regardless of whether it is one born of blood or chosen with the wisdom of experience. The dichotomy and tension between what is and what almost was will linger long after the last page has been read. Love Maps is a commendable achievement that captures the interrelation of fear and love in the unbalanced reality of modern adulthood.
