“An Angel for Toby: A Novel” is a gripping novel about a boy and a man plagued by demons. “An Angel for Toby” is the creation of published author Jenifer Manuel Aune, a respiratory therapist from Louisiana who moved to Broomfield, Colorado, with her husband.

Aune writes, “To compound the issue of his disability, Toby began to react with fear and panic when touching other people. It was not until age six that he finally confided to his mother that he saw things when he touched other people, most often very bad things. She believed him without a doubt. She had often noticed the raw terror that stemmed
from any physical contact with his father, even when his father was only trying to hug him. Unfortunately, Toby’s negative reactions always enraged his father who was only too happy to dole out quick and sometimes severe punishment. As Abbey thought about this revelation, it occurred to her that her son had always possessed a special kind of intuition. She recalled that he was especially good at finding things that were lost. One afternoon, Abbey decided to jot down all of the times that Toby had found lost items or when he seemed to know what she was thinking. Like a bolt of lightning out of a clear blue sky, Abbey got the greatest aha moment of her life. Toby only received this special kind of knowledge after touching her. She immediately raced to the library to research extrasensory perception.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Jenifer Manuel Aune’s new book is a beautifully intense, dark tale shot through with the light of hope.

Aune supplies a compelling narrative that combines real literary talent with a strong faith in the Lord and his angelic agents for a thoroughly engaging read.
