Description

A "heart-wrenching and humorous" (Publishers Weekly) love story for anyone who's ever wanted something-or someone-just out of reach, Colleen Oakley's Close Enough to Touch will delight fans of Jojo Moyes's One Plus One and Graeme Simsion's The Rosie Project. Can you miss something you never had? Jubilee Jenkins is no ordinary librarian. With a rare allergy to human touch, any skin-to-skin contact could literally kill her. But after retreating into solitude for nearly ten years, Jubilee's decided to brave the world again, despite the risks. Armed with a pair of gloves, long sleeves, and her trusty bicycle, she finally ventures out the front door-and into her future. Eric Keegan has troubles of his own. With his daughter from a failed marriage no longer speaking to him, and his brilliant, if psychologically troubled, adopted son attempting telekinesis, Eric's struggling to figure out how his life got so off course, and how to be the dad-and man-he wants so desperately to be. So when an encounter over the check-out desk at the local library entangles his life with that of a beautiful-albeit eccentric-woman, he finds himself wanting nothing more than to be near her. A "heart-wrenching and humorous" (Publishers Weekly) love story for anyone who's ever wanted something-or someone-just out of reach, Colleen Oakley's Close Enough to Touch will delight fans of Jojo Moyes's One Plus One and Graeme Simsion's The Rosie Project.
