Denver (PRWEB) January 6, 2011
Contemporary fiction writer Amanda Mininger is pleased to announce the release of her debut novel "Touch" on January 11, 2011 (Good Place Publishing, An Imprint of Wyatt-MacKenzie). This lyrical, character-driven story, set in Denver, is about understanding life’s trajectories, and discovering that nothing is ever really the end.
Ava lies sick and dying, spending her days in the hospital remembering Theo, the one who got away. Theo is married and bitter, unable to come to terms with his choices, while his wife struggles toward alcoholism. Mary, Ava’s middle-aged, financially struggling caretaker in the hospital, starts bringing her nephew Sidney to work, where he meets Ava and forms a unique bond with her. When Theo hears of Ava’s condition, he struggles with a difficult choice: to bridge the physical and emotional distance after all these years…or not. Beating time and swallowing pride, Ava and Theo reach toward each other, as those around them begin to heal in their own ways, too.
