Mike, Marlon, MyIesha, Jermaine, Johnee, Jakyra, George, and Koko—though belonging to different sibling groups—grew up together as one big loving family. Despite their bonds, the relationships among them still had complexities and struggles. For instance, Mike and Jakyra, a married couple, endured a year apart due to their tumultuous history. Mike's past led to physical abuse, and Jakyra sought solace elsewhere through infidelity. Now reunited, Jakyra seeks a fresh start with Mike, hoping to mend their broken relationship. However, their reconciliation faces opposition from their siblings and closest friends, who resent their reunion. Meanwhile, Mike grapples with his past demons, inadvertently causing harm to those around him, even to the ones he loves. Amidst the main couple's journey, M. Marie Walker's My House also delves into the lives and dynamics of their surrounding community.

My House, Book 1 in the series, captivates readers from the outset with its gripping narrative and vivid character descriptions. Author M. Marie Walker intricately details each character, offering insight into their mind and behavior as well. Despite the abundance of characters, Walker's skillful writing ensures clarity and distinction between them. The narrative seamlessly transitions between comedy, drama, and action, creating an engaging reading experience. While initially appearing centered on specific themes like infidelity and violence, the story unfolds to reveal more layers. Other themes include betrayal and revenge. Buckle up for a whirlwind of suspense as My House unfolds a gripping tale, promising an electrifying start to the series.

When I wrote this book, I wrote with the intent to evoke emotions from each character, bringing them to life with social injustices, real life tragedy and family struggles. It's one of the reasons I made revisions and revamped the cover of the book. Some things may be hard to read through but the challenges and struggles each character encounters shows a realness that keeps them humble. I would love to hear feedback from the wonderful reader world. Your opinions and comments are always welcome and much appreciated!
