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 fiance, 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' skill for her project, Jones' 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.

Professional reviews

"Paul Michael's solemn voice conveys the emotional conflicts of Dr. Andrew Jones and the complex, intelligent character of Dr. Lara Blair. When Jones fails to surgically save his fiancŽe's life after a car crash, he fears he's lost "the touch"--until he falls in love with Blair, a biomedical engineering laboratory owner with a personal motive for getting Jones to perform a delicate brain operation. Michael provides credible Italian and Appalachian accents and perceptively delivers the poignant dialogue. However, his weighty voice sometimes doesn't sound authentically female. In this journey of silent charity, hope comes one day at a time. K.P. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
