She can heal her patients. But when tragedy strikes, can she mend her own broken heart? England, 1986. Physiotherapist Ellie Rose is devastated by the tragic loss of her soulmate. Unable to endure the stifling sympathy of friends, she quits London for the quiet countryside of Essex where she knows no one. And after suffering too long at an awful job, she establishes a holistic health clinic and wonders if she’ll ever reclaim her happiness.

Much to her surprise, Ellie finds solace in healing her clients. But she still can’t release the pain lingering in her soul. Until a charming new neighbor with his own grief opens the door to loving again. Can Ellie, at last, find the strength to let go of the past and live life once more with passion?

Touch is the first book in the uplifting Ellie Rose women’s fiction series. If you like inspiring stories of self-discovery, wounded heroes, and second-chance love, then you’ll adore Angela Cairns’ beautiful tale.

Helen’s thoughts: 5/5

Such a lovely book. A warm and loving romance about second chances after unbearable loss. Cairns treats sensitive subjects with care and understanding and introduces us to a new heroine in the form of Ellie Rose.

A dedicated physiotherapist with a deep understanding of alternative therapies and how the body works, Ellie strives to set up a new practice as a way to survive after the loss of her soulmate. Through her patients Ellie discovers a drive for life and the understanding that she doesn’t have to spend her life alone.

It may be a second chance to find love, but Ellie takes life slowly and surely. This book ends up being a warm hug as both Ellie and Mark find their way, both uncertain as they overcome their losses, are they brave enough to try again?

We certainly hope so!
