An Emotional Look Through the Uncanny Eyes of a Womanizer in Gloria Mallette’s New Novel, IF THERE BE PAIN
National best selling author Gloria Mallette again uses her skills as a story teller to capture serious readers. With her eighth novel, If There Be Pain (Dafina/Kensington Publishing, 0758211597, $15.00) Ms. Mallette takes readers into the passion filled world of a selfish womanizer who needs to change his ways. Kyle is a nice guy with an insufferable addiction. This is his story and he tells it with a man’s ambivalence.
As a young boy Kyle toyed with the feelings of his playmates, he now operates on a grander scale; he toys with women’s emotions. For some reason Kyle will not commit emotionally to a relationship. He is quite generous with material things, but only shares his emotions with his sister and his grandfather. His love for his grandfather changes once the older man becomes ill.
Indifference to his grandfather and involvements with three different women are beginning to affect Kyle’s emotional balance; he knows something has to change. The change comes after his grandfather’s death. Kyle has recurring dreams about faceless women, and dreamlike visits from his grandfather’s spirit; Kyle’s grandfather is not pleased with his growth into manhood. Are the dreams trying to convey a message? Will this stubborn, willful man be ’man enough’ to listen? And can he be converted?
