Synopsis: "Welcome to a man's world in today's society," says Green of A Woman's Touch, a story of a man, Richard Krevitz, who defeats all odds until he meets Sheryl Crawson. Sheryl tells Richard she is an orphan, just as he is, and certain he has met his ideal mate Richard marries her. By the time their child is born he has grown wary of her rages and soon realizes she is totally insane. A Woman's Touch is a story of a man who wishes to start a new life with his daughter, and how he is faced with society's inability to recognize and admit that some women are simply evil.
Review: The publisher describes A Woman s Touch as a riveting, emotional punch in the gut. I must concur. Tena Green s psychological thriller is as demented as they come. Don t get me wrong, Green is a fantastic writer and she spins a tight narrative. It s just that the story has such a high degree of asperity that I often had to put the book down on purpose, simply to allow myself processing time. Caveat to the reader: A Woman s Touch is not for the faint of heart. It is not a pretty story. It s intense and scary as hell. From what I can tell, that was the author s intent. I am certain that Tena Green wanted to make the reader more than a bit uncomfortable. Although this is a work of fiction, it s also social commentary. A Woman s Touch is about the life-long consequences of emotional, physical and sexual abuse. It is about the creation of real, human monsters--monsters that may be walking among us without us ever picking up on them. Richard Krevitz grew up with a monster. Richard is a man carrying lots of baggage. His scars are deep and painful. Nevertheless, he s determined to make a clean break from his abuse-filled childhood. Richard vows to never pass on the sins perpetrated upon him and to establish a normal life. What Richard doesn t understand is that when it comes to relationships, like attracts like and hidden pain attracts hidden pain. It is already too late when Richard realizes that he has fallen in love with and married a psychopath. Richard's wife, Sheryl is the product of skin-crawling, domestic abuse. She s a monster. Richard soon discovers the terrible truth about Sheryl and the rest of the story is about Richard s struggle to escape from the wrath of his twisted, evil wife. To make matters worse, Richard and Sheryl have a child, so the driving issue becomes one of whether Richard will allow this evil to again be passed on. When Richard decides to save his little girl all hell breaks loose and he is forced to take extreme measures in order to liberate them from Sheryl s tyranny. The question that remains is whether the authorities that become embroiled in this case can bring themselves to believe that a woman could be the monster. --Carolina Summers Book Reviews
