Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Catherine Anderson takes listeners to a quaint wilderness town, where a man and a woman find a second chance at life - and love...

Determined to give her son Jeremy the childhood he deserves, Chloe Evans has left a tough past behind and is starting fresh in the charming resort town of Jack Pine, Oregon. But protecting Jeremy becomes a dicey proposition when he seeks out the most dangerous man in town to heal his sick puppy. 

Chloe has been warned to stay away from Ben Longtree. But there's something about the gentle, untamed loner that intrigues her....    

Long ago, Ben accepted his role as town outcast. Rumored to have once killed a man, he lives in splendid isolation with his forgetful mother, secretly employing his skills as a veterinarian to heal the wounded animals that mysteriously come to him. Now, Chloe's sunny warmth and brave tenacity arouse desires he has long denied. And although Ben is notorious for his healing touch, it is Chloe's hands - and heart - that have the power to save his battered soul.

Only by Your Touch

I was so disappointed in the narrator! She ruled the story for me! I couldn't wait for it to end!
I believe if Polar Witherspoon or Johanna Parker narrated it, been so much better! I downloaded both New books! The Narrator made it misable to listen to!

One of my all-time favorite books!

Just loved it - animals, kids, romance, crime, mystery - in just the right mix!
I will look for more by this author.

optional doesn't mean required!

Hard to keep listening. Not a fan of the affected voice. Redundant. Repetitve. Liked others better.

ALMOST VERY GOOD

The story was to my liking. However, for me, there was to much waffling on the emotions and some thing were drawn out a bit far for me. Other than that, it kept my attention and I enjoyed it.

Terrible Narration

I listened all the way through because I usually like Catherine Anderson's books. This story wasn't her best but it somewhat held my interest. I have over 400 books in my audible library and this was the WORST narrator I have ever heard. She was so overly dramatic that every paragraph just dripped with drama. I had to grit my teeth to just get through the whole book. When I saw that Catherine Anderson's newest book was also narrated by the same person, I decided to skip buying that book. I usually like the narrators of her books, but as long as this is her narrator, I will not be buying her books. Please change narrators.

Favorite author

I’ve never disliked a Catherine Anderson book. This narrator does a great job with all the different characters voices. I just couldn’t get past the fact that her main voice sounded like Eliza Jane Wilder on Little House on the Prairie.

Fantastic Story!

This book had a wonderful story line, in-depth characters and good narration. I could have done without the sex scenes; the story was certainly good enough to stand on it's own without them. Based on the cover, not at all what I expected, I was pleasantly surprised.

Terrible narration; impossible to listen to

The story premise is really nice, but the narrator is simply awful. It sounds like she is narrating to a group for 4 year olds with her terrible internation. If you can deal with this, the story is good but she is simply awful and it ruins your desire to push on and continue listening.

Beautiful...

What a gorgeous story. I loved the main characters . I really didn’t want it to end. It was my first book by Catherine Anderson and I’m looking forward to downloading another. I thought Ann Marie Lee put so much into the narration her style was quite different.
