Never walk alone

   (3 reviews)

Andrew Devlin has three things he loves most. His parents, his only family, his boyfriend Ryan,  and the hospitality industry, his chosen career. When his parents are tragically killed, his biggest desire is to have a family of his own, to love and be loved. With assistance from a very large inheritance he sets about doing just that.

The story is my first major attempt at writing a book and is  semi-autobiographical, especially locations and most of the travels around the world.

It is mostly light reading, but there are one or two chapters where readers should apply caution. Those chapters will be prefaced with warnings when they are posted.

It is set mostly in Cape Town, South Africa and I hope readers will enjoy the many references  to my beautiful country.

This is  a fantastic first story from this author.

We follow Andrew and Ryan as they overcome the death of Andrews parents.

With there large inheritance we watch them build up there hospitality business. Work towards there aim of having a family.

This story takes you many places and features some amazing culinary delights.

A fantastic first part to the story of Andrew and Ryan Devlin-Major, family and friends. Comes highly recommended and I look forward to part 2.

@chris191070and @flescohave brilliantly and succinctly captured the essence of this story in their reviews, such that I have little I can add.

The story has it all, tragedy, humour, an abundance of love and some violence. The latter was neither gratuitous nor trite, @Andre Delport providing just enough detail for the reader to understand the impact of the violence on the central characters, without an excess of gore and explicit details. 

For this reader, the story was immeasurably enhanced by the inclusion of a wonderful canine character by the name of Rascal. Rascal is an integral part of the Devlin-Major family, not a mere "accessory" in the lives of the human family members. Each time he is prominently featured you cannot help but be enthralled by his antics and in awe of his love for his human family members. @Andre Delport is to be lauded for recognising and celebrating the human/non-human animal bond.

I too look forward to a continuation of the saga of the Devlin-Major family and their band of close friends (especially the delightful Claude whom I would like to see play a bigger part in the next book @Andre Delport).

Never Walk Alone is a very touching debut novel. The story is about a pair of young men who love each other deeply, but due to job conflicts, don’t spend much time together. A tragedy occurs that will change their lives in a profound way. There is a lot of travel, lots of fine dining and experiences that help them to create a life that is fulfilling and filled with love, family and friends. I strongly recommend this novel. You will enjoy the depth of the story, the amazingly deep characters with unique and varied personalities, and the passionate relationship between the main characters.

Response from the author:

Wow, 5 stars! A huge thanks to both you and Chris. I felt like Andrew and Ryan accepting the lodge awards.
