The Unmistakable Touch of Grace

by Cheryl Richardson

"Every event we experience and every person we meet has intentionally been put in our path to help us lead more conscious and fulfilled lives," says Cheryl Richardson, the New York Times bestselling author of Take Time for Your Life, Life Makeovers, and Stand Up for Your Life. In her new book -- her most personal work to date -- she'll show you that, once you learn to view your life from this perspective, the person who smiles at you while you're walking down the street is no longer a stranger, the phone call from an old friend who crossed your mind the day before is no longer a surprise, and the failed relationship that left you brokenhearted is no longer a source of bitterness and pain. Instead, these experiences -- examples of what Richardson calls "the unmistakable touch of grace" -- are seen as blessings in disguise, gifts that make you stronger, more conscious, and, ultimately, more alive. To read this beautiful, intimate, and profoundly inspiring book is like having a conversation with Richardson herself. Filled with illuminating stories, provocative experiments, and striking examples of how grace has influenced her own life, Richardson will help you recognize that your life is being influenced, too, in ways you may never have imagined. The Unmistakable Touch of Grace helps you to see the hidden miracles that occur every day -- and gives you the courage to use them to make your life more meaningful, magical, hopeful, and complete.

But, as Geri digs a little deeper, she comes up with frightening questions, and no answers: Why should a perfectly healthy man like Dr. Pascoe die after a simple case of food poisoning, and why such a gruesome death? The further Geri delves, the more suspicious the circumstances become, and before long she discovers that Thomas Pascoe has died from something far worse than food poisoning. Dr. Pascoe is the victim of a deadly super-bug-a bacterium resulting from over-use of antibiotics in farm animals. Geri begins to investigate, only to be thwarted at every attempt to discover the truth. The authorities are curiously unwilling to help, more people are dying, and suddenly Geri finds herself in the middle of a dangerous conspiracy.
