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.

“Ellen Roth is a remarkable storyteller who weaves a spell in this sweet, sexy, romantic fable. At a time when it’s hard to turn on the television or pick up a newspaper because of bad news, this is a book to pick up instead. It will warm your heart.”
—Mackenzie Carpenter, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
“A bewitching love story that’s a fairy tale for grown-ups.”
“Roth’s love story transcends the battle of good and evil in her classic fairy tale. The climax of the book is a revelation…A satisfying story for those who…enjoy a fairy-tale ending…Blumen’s stunning illustrations that accompany the text are a beautiful contribution.”
“…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

My thoughts: Although I tend to not be a fan of fiction, I am definitely a sucker for fairytales. I would always be reading Grimm's fairytales well into my teen years.Ten Fingers Touching is an enchanting journey of romance, mystery and adventure. It is the perfect love story combined with good and evil. I definitely got lost in this magical story. It kind of felt like a guilty pleasure, as it was a fairytale written just for me! I was sent a copy of this beautifully illustrated book along with some delectable Fairytale Brownies to enjoy. It was pure heaven to lock myself in my room on a Friday night to devour my brownies and become absorbed into my own little fantasy world with this book.
