L uke and Meesha Ferless, college sweethearts now professionals in their thirties, are hiking in a rain forest far from civilization. Their vacation to the idyllic island, Re’enev, is a major step toward rejuvenating what was once a beautiful marriage–a marriage whose decline, due to Luke’s betrayal, prompted Meesha to attempt suicide. While hiking, they unknowingly venture into forbidden territory. When they separate briefly in the dense flora, Meesha vanishes.
Tragedy has separated Luke and Meesha once, emotionally; they were beginning to heal. Now it has struck again, this time physically. Luke has to find her; but the elements are against him while his mind, his only ally, can also be an enemy.
Mainstream fiction spiced with mystery, romance and suspense, Re’enev captures both the beauty and fragility of marital love and human life. The story is unique in the way it conjoins an urbane couple with primitive danger, blissful sensuality with unbridled brutality, and a cerebral protagonist with a world that seems to lack reason; then, the conclusion brings unexpected redemption, but with a stunning twist and a lethal caveat. Re’enev is that rare novel that appeals across genders and genres with its intense plot, poetic prose, sharp dialogue, and candid depiction of the human psyche through relationships, crises, perceptions, and emotions–most notably, love and fear.
A superbly crafted mainstream novel…Re’enev is an original, imaginative, compelling, and accomplished work of engaging, at times almost lyrical storytelling. –Midwest Book Review
“Just when you think you have it all figured out, another twist and turn pulls you in a different direction. Mike has a talent for pulling in the reader and presenting characters with depth…a story for anyone who has ever loved and lost.” –Dr. Jose B. Gonzalez, Professor of English at the United States Coast Guard Academy and co-editor of Latino Boom: An Anthology of U.S. Latino Literature
[Re'enev] is fast paced, exciting, and full of tension…This is a novel that stays with, and unhinges the reader, because of the way its first person narrative draws the reader into an uncomfortable alliance… an interesting psychological study. –Magdalena Ball, Senior Editor and Reviewer at “The Compulsive Reader”.
