A Slight Touch

On an unremarkable afternoon a bus departs for Los Angeles. As if guided by an unseen hand, three passengers alter their fates when a man loses the battle with the voices inside his head.

On a summer afternoon in Albuquerque, a bus departs for Los Angeles and three of the passengers, unfamiliar with one another, are unaware of how entangled their paths will soon become. Empty-nester Martha Gregory, lacking experience in a world beyond her husband and home in New Mexico, is lured by a pre-paid ticket to reconnect with her younger sister. Handsome media executive Marc Greensweig, deigns to return from a business trip by bus, fortified by the free pass to the top of the corporate ladder awaiting him at home. Emanuel Montoya, recent college grad fleeing a painful breakup, eagerly embraces the new life that beckons when offered a place to stay in West Hollywood. Meanwhile, simmering in L. A. is William Miller, a lonely security guard, fighting a losing battle to distance himself from the troubling voices in his head. As if guided by an unseen hand, each must respond to a crisis in which their actions will ultimately determine whether second chances really do exist…

On the pages of A Slight Touch the reader is carried along on an absorbing romp through the elusive junctures that cross and recross in the course of life. Human significance is touched on in gentle manner which is neither unbending nor devotee as writer Cherryholmes lends a bit of faith based tweak the text.

Interesting writing format: Structured to follow a three act arrangement of a theatre play the format works well to craft reflexivity for characters and readers. A compelling work fashioned with intriguing associations between characters drawing the reader into the work if for no other reason than the text revolves around the main players all being drawn to Los Angeles for the purpose of attending a theatre production.

Filled to capacity with a varied grouping of precise, multifaceted characters who appear estranged at times, but linked by self-discovery find themselves prodded in the direction of a commonality of thought to thwart a calamity in the making and set against well defined back drop of things to see, noise and reverberation as well as varying venues have merged to make A Slight Touch a most intriguing read. Writer Cherryholmes proves to be a very adept storyteller in this blending of wit, self-observation and suspenseful chronicle.

For a California native who has often visited the Los Angeles area and have traveled through Albuquerque many times during family vacations, and as a Oklahoma resident who has stepped aboard AmTrak over in Kansas to ride the South West Chief through Albuerque and on to LA; reading of A Slight Touch was accomplished with nods of the head and ummm hmmm, as I found places and people I could all but recognize as having seen or met.

Enjoyed the read, happy to recommend, not for everyone those easily offended will get their knickers in a knot: some profanity and some reference to homosexuality.
