Ellen A. Roth’s beautiful hardbound book, Ten Fingers Touching, was just released this month. It’s an exquisite book to hold in your hands, but inside is a story that will touch your heart.
“…beautifully written and illustrated, it combines all the hallmarks of the genre—adventure, romance, mystery and morality—with a wise and womanly viewpoint.”
—Marylynn Uricchio, Pittsburgh Columnist
Roth spins a passionate fable of suspense and romance illustrated with lush paintings rendered in the highest fantasy tradition by renowned artist John Blumen. Together they weave a spellbinding story of two young lovers caught between the forces of good and evil, with the future of the kingdom and an innocent child’s life at stake. Can the young master of the forest and his beloved maiden save the kingdom and find their “happily ever after?” Fans of Once Upon a Time and The Princess Bride will be swept up in this story featuring the freshest new figures in romantic fantasy literature.
ELLEN A. ROTH’s TEN FINGERS TOUCHING is a true labor of love. As a child, Roth was enchanted by fairytales and spent countless hours reading and dreaming. After earning an MFA from Syracuse University, Roth moved to Pittsburgh, PA, where she worked as a registered art therapist, helping emotionally disturbed and developmentally disabled children, before earning her Ph.D from the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Education. In 1991, Roth co-founded Getting to the Point, Inc., a premier consulting firm that specializes in helping corporations attract high level executives to Pittsburgh. A member of the National Speakers Association, she has published numerous professional papers and articles. During her career, Roth has received several awards and was named one of the Best 50 Women in Business in Pennsylvania. She shares her life with her husband, Dr. Loren Roth, and her children.
Ten Fingers Touching is available at booksellers across the country in both paperback and hardcover editions. (Personally, the hardcover is a lovely book to add to your bookshelves and will be a treasure to pass along to your daughters and nieces.)
