- Storm of Passion
on Sep. 05, 2011
Despite the soap opera title, Storm of Passion is a simple, sweet love story. Two childhood friends, one openly gay and the other ostensibly straight, rekindle a friendship and attempt to move beyond that into love. Each is afraid of losing the recovered friendship to take the next step. External conflict, beyond each of the lover's internal issues, is minimal. The story moved quickly and effortlessly pulls you into the character' lives and makes it easy for us to care about the characters, one, Jaime, a former soldier and Parker, his childhood friend, now the police chief in a small Georgia town. After some emotional and a bit religious confusion the story arrives at a happy ending. Happy endings don't always make great literature, but in an all too frequently hateful world, we should give ourselves as many happy endings as possible.
