"A sublime haunting, a ripping yarn, and a killer debut."—J. Robert Lennon
In Sawgamet, a north woods boomtown gone bust, the cold of winter breaks the glass of the schoolhouse thermometer, and the dangers of working in the cuts are overshadowed by the mysteries and magic lurking in the woods. Stephen, a pastor, is at home on the eve of his mother's funeral, thirty years after the mythic summer his grandfather returned to the town in search of his beloved but long-dead wife. And like his grandfather, Stephen is forced to confront the losses of his past.
Touch introduces you to a world where monsters and witches oppose singing dogs and golden caribou, where the living and the dead part and meet again in the crippling beauty of winter and the surreal haze of summer.

Wonderful yet haunting! Each chapter pulls you deeper into the mystery of the eternal. Touched my soul and my belief that all is possible and imagination has it's roots in truth. This is a keeper.
This book captivated me from start to finish. The detail was so extensive that I began to form the characters in my mind and place them in the story. When I finished, I felt as if I had been touched. The author definitely pulled the story together at the end.
