Andrew Jones was once one of the few surgeons in the world to have that rare, God-given ability called The Touch. But after failing to save his young fiancťe, Faith, at the scene of a car accident, Jones abandons his gift and shuns the operating room.
Lara Blair owns a Chicago-based biomedical engineering company developing a surgical tool that will duplicate precisely the movement of a surgeonís hands, reducing or eliminating failed surgical procedures. Lara has pursued the best surgeons in the world to test this surgical tool, and all of them have failed.
As Lara pursues Jonesís skill for her project, Jonesís stubborn resistance cracks, and he begins to open up to her about the wounds that still haunt him. But when Jones discovers the urgency behind Laraís work, he must choose to move beyond his past. As each is forced to surrender secret fears, they are bonded together through the lives of the people Jones serves and by the healing secret that Faith left behind.

An Okay Read...| Posted February 04, 2013 The Touch by Randal Wallace was a touching story. (Sorry, I couldn't help myself) It kept me entertained but it was kind of touch and go. (Again, sorry but it was just too tempting) I don't know if I'd read it again but I don't regret picking it up. There was one thing throughout the book that I found troubling. It was the statement "There are only two things anyone must know: there is a God, and that God loves us. That is all we need to know." I think we need to know more than that. But other than needing to add a touch (I'm having too much fun) more to this area of thought, all in all it was an okay read.
