Review

"A fascinating read - a gripping and ultimately moving story about the undying love of brothers and family that raises our spirits by affirming the power of change in our lives."
-Louis Zorich
Film/TV/Stage Actor and Author of What Have You Done?

From the Author

When I moved to NYC in the late 80s, I met a minister who was 'ex gay' that wanted to help me change my own life. Before we heard 'pray-away-the-gay' or 'reparative therapy'.  As I grew more comfortable with who I was and got away from that church, I realized how that man touched my life, staying with me for years and I looked for a way to work through the confusion of it all. That's how this book was born. Based on real life events, Well With My Soul captures a world of turmoil while attempting to find inner peace.

As the title indicates, the evocative "Well With My Soul" journeys into matters of the spirit, asking the central question, "Who are we, at our core--and is that a good place to be???" Following two starkly different brothers, the tale juxtaposes their home life in the rural South with New York and all of the temptations a dazzling city can bring. Author Gregory G. Allen paints a startling portrait of the dark side of that Studio 54 world, with the characters attempting to reconcile who they think they are meant to be with what is truly in their hearts. "Well With My Soul" takes us on a surprising, disturbing, and ultimately rewarding ride as the brothers divergent paths intersect and they attempt to find redemption, both with each other and within themselves. At times humorous, and others heartbreaking, the novel left this reader examining his own path and choices, to make sure that, indeed, all is well with my soul...

Format: Paperback
Every now and then, I read a book that resonates with me on more than one level. A book that stays with me after I've finished it and I keep replaying certain scenes again in my mind. Such is the case with "Well With My Soul." Novelist Gregory G. Allen has created a modern masterpiece with this tale of two brothers, one gay and the other straight, whose lives over a period of fifteen years are told through their own voices. How one entwines with the other while they live their respective realities, and the choices they make which propel them into their futures toward destinations neither thought would be their fate.

In this outstanding novel, Allen writes with the experience of one who has lived the lives he's relating through his characters. While the commonality of the human condition applies to all of us on certain levels, the indivuduality of the people we are intrinsically to become gives each one of us a perspective that is unique, touching, and ultimately ours and ours alone. The characters in "Well With My Soul" are much more than just characters in a book; they become more like three dimensional people who might just live next door to you, whose stories you would love to know but in reality will likely never get the chance, and an ending to one chapter is always the beginning of another.

I can highly recommend both "Well With My Soul" and its outstanding author. Get to know Gregory G. Allen through his website, his social media outlets, and his other works of literature. Enriching lives in what any good writer should be about, and with entries like this one Greg is already making his mark. 5 Big Stars.

Brothers testing the bonds of blood...
Jacob and Noah Garrett are brothers harboring a lifelong resentment towards each other while dealing with their own compulsive obsessions. One is a liberal gay man who forsakes his family and moves to New York City from Tennessee to make his mark on the world. The other is a southern conservative who is left at home holding the proverbial family bag. The story follows their loosely intertwined lives through the wild times of the late seventies and the restraint of the Reagan years in which one brother ends up becoming a minister and preaching his doctrine while the other believes there are some things people are born with and not meant to change. Well with My Soul is told through the perspective of both brothers and shows how misguided choices can drastically affect those around you for years to come; and how family may be all that one has when looking for peace to stifle the embers that smolder beneath the surface.

What Stephanie Thinks: The southern family values give this book a bit of a slow start, but the pace picks up thrillingly when Jacob, the elder and more attention-seeking of the Garrett brothers, moves out to begin his career as a high-profile male model in the Big Apple. There, he discovers the ecstatic delights of sex and drugs, and is finally fully able to embrace his gay identity with his loving partner, Gary. For a large portion of Well with My Soul, partying and bright city life contrasts with the drawl Noah's day-to-day routine back home in Tennessee with stern but compassionate Mama.

Well With My Soul by Gregory G. Allen tells the story of two brothers, Jacob and Noah Garrett. One is gay, the other straight. One is liberal, the other conservative. Both are on their respective paths in life and as is often with brothers, their life paths take them in different directions. As it true with siblings, they have their own interpretations of their life growing up together and how their parents treated the other brother, which in my family has been very revealing.
The story itself is an emotional ride through the ups and downs of sibling rivalry, filtered through the gay/straight and liberal/conservative lenses. Jacob is lured off to New York by the dream of a successful career in modeling and show business with all the glitz and glamour that goes with it. With Jacob off in New York, Noah feels duty bound to stay home with their mother, hurt by Jacob's rejection of their small town comfortable life in the American South. As the story progresses, the brothers find their paths cross and have taken some unexpected twists, much like life itself.
The story itself is a look not only at the relationship between the two brothers as they examine their own relationship with the other, but also their relationships with the significant others in their lives, and most importantly, their relationship with themselves.
Allen's storytelling is touching, at times very light-hearted and at other times very deep, but always provoking. The story resonated with me in such that I began to examine my relationship with my brothers. A definite must read.
