So you want to know what happens to you when you die. You want to know whether you go to heaven or hell, or do you just become consumed by total darkness and vanish from existence forever? Fine, then I will tell you. First, for all those people out there who think that when you’re dead, that’s it, finite, nothingness – this does not happen. How do I know this? Simple, I am dead.
Touching the Rainbow tells the story of a young man, Pete, a victim of a dysfunctional childhood who is riddled with insecurity and self-doubt. He is not married, but has been engaged to his long-suffering girlfriend for 11 years. Suddenly, fate delivers a severe blow and he is killed in a car crash. To his horror, he becomes a trapped soul.
His salvation arrives in the form of a celestial helper who tells him that it is all the emotional problems he suffered on earth that are keeping him from moving on. To free his soul, he must accomplish a mission that will force him to face up to all the fears and regrets he tried to shy away from when he was alive.
However, in doing this, he also discovers some shocking revelations about his past – and a startling twist to the meaning of his former life...
Touching the Rainbow has been inspired by the works of James Herbert; the simplistic yet realistic style of Herbert’s The Rats led Paul to emulate the same style. The book will appeal to fans of paranormal romance fiction – as well as readers with a deep sentimental core and a natural curiosity about the mysteries of life.
