Publisher's Description

2012 Christy Award finalist, Contemporary series category.
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 fiancée, 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 surgeon’s 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 Jones’s skill for her project, Jones’s 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 Lara’s 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.

    I think it was the fact that this this is the author of Braveheart which made me approach this book the wrong way. I expected a compelling, fast-paced story from the get-go. It took me while to realize this was a different story. Once I decided to let this story stand alone and allowed it to lead me gently through the storyline it was telling, I was captivated. I love Appalachia and the setting of this expert high-tech doctor in this back-woods poor country was intriguing and a great way to develop the tension. I didn't get the twist and won't give that jewel away in this review. Safe it to say, this is a story worth reading. But read it for the story it is...a story with a pace and message all its own.

    The Touch by Randall Wallace. What a great book. This book is about a surgeon who has wonderful God given talent but is dealing with the loss of his fiance. It also is about a woman at the forefront of medical research. How their lives intersect and what unfolds is wonderful. Sometimes this book moves a little slowly but the author paints the scenery of Applachia beautifully.

    Doctor Andrew loses a loved one and refuses to do surgery again. Lara owns a research company that is developing a surgical tool and needs a surgeon to test the tool. When she hears about Andrew's surgical skill, she wants to work with him at her company, but he refuses.

    I thought this book was interesting. Medical research has come quite far in recent years, and this book shows how one tool can help save lives.

    The Touch by Randall Wallace

    I really enjoyed the book more than I thought I would. Throughout the novel it was hard to actually get inside the head of Andrew Jones (or Jones, as his colleagues call him) Faith Thomas or Lara (Laura without the u) Blair. So why did I like it in spite of that fact? Or why did I not really connect with them? All three of these characters were wrapped up in their professions as doctors, Lara being a researcher. They were well developed, but I seemed to miss that part that brought them into my life for me.

    The story line was well written, and flowed rather like a river, but I am thinking that it could have had more depth, and the suspense could have been more developed. Actually, on second thought, perhaps it just was that it is a short story, easily read in an afternoon. As that, it was clearly a great little book.

    Having said that, I am not criticizing the author or the editors...and the surprises were there. Randall clearly shows "The Touch" from the time Jones and Faith see the painting by Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel until the end of the novel. It is understood that The Touch is the touch of God's hand to man's hand, as the artist portrayed it. Both Jones and Lara grow from being rather reclusive and selfish to learning more about God's great love and plan for them.

    I will definitely be telling others about Randall Wallace and The Touch, and will be looking for more novels by him.

    The opinions stated in this review are my own, and this is an honest review.
