Praise from Bloggers

THE FAIRYTALE TRAVELER
July 20, 2015.
Ten Fingers Touching was named the “Travel Size Good Read of the Month.”
“I really hope Ellen writes a sequel to this tale…It’s an absolutely beautifully written story of love, tragedy, and heroism with a dash of adventure.  From magic to sea monsters and everything between, this is a true fairy tale.”

SMART MOM PICKS
April 15, 2015.
“If you’re a fan of ABC’s once Upon a Time or the recent movie Into the Woods, you’re sure to find yourself swept up in this fresh new fairy tale…After I finished the story, I went back through the book a second time just to take in the beauty of the illustrations.”

MINA’S BOOKSHELF
April 11, 2015.
“If you are looking for a read that will breathe new vigor and freshness into the vastly exploited formula of the romantic fantasy, you’ll find Ten Fingers Touching by Ellen A. Roth a remarkable compendium of all the hallmarks of the fairytale genre…The vibrant illustrations are one of the most striking features of the book, along with the endearing quality of the leading characters.”

BEAUTIFUL MOMMIES

“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.”

LET THEM READ BOOKS
February 26, 2015
“The author calls this book a labor of love, and that is evident in the finished product. The presentation alone makes it worthy of adding to any fairy tale lover’s collection.”

STAY AT HOME MOM

“This is a great book for anyone who likes fantasy books…I liked the “love story” between the two main characters.  Also the interesting story line that occurred between Good vs. Evil.  There are also a few fun twists in the plot. And some I was surprised at even up til the end.”

PURE JONEL
February 23, 2015.
“I was fully absorbed in this story, the rest of the world falling away while I lost myself in its pages.  Roth’s elegant prose meld perfectly with the eloquently told tale.  The characters are loveable. They’re also believable and ideally suited to their roles in the story.  This novel transcends all ages and will easily stand the test of time.

This book itself is beautifully put together.  The layout reminds me of an illuminated manuscript, adding another layer of enchantment to the tale and giving the feeling of being drawn back in time…

This really is a visually and intellectually appealing work of art.  The breathtaking illustrations combine with the intriguing plot to create a quick, unforgettable read for the audience.  It will be loved by women of all ages.  It’s the type of story that a mother and daughter can enjoy together, that a young woman will devour on her own, and that a grandmother can lose herself in.”

THE PEN & MUSE
February 22, 2015.
“Ten Fingers Touching is a new twist on the classic fairytale…The beautiful illustrations bring the story to life and makes it seem like the ancient myth books that I used to love reading.  Those who love fantasy and romance will love going on the journey with Marianna and Martak.”
