Benjamin by Kathryn Mattingly Pre-released in NorCal and Oregon
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- May 14, 2013
A brilliant psychopath. A boy with healing powers. A man trying to balance
faith with love. A strong, determined heroine. Put it all together and an
amazing story results. Benjamin, written by Kathryn Mattingly and published by
Winter Goose, is now available for purchase in Northern California book stores
and available in digital formats for NOOK ® and Kindle .
Benjamin is the fictional story of an extraordinary boy with healing powers
and the dramatic twists leading his mother, Tori, to seek out the boy’s
unknowing father who plays a significant role in the Catholic Church. Tori
confronts death, denial and treachery in the battle to protect her son, his
gifts and his father.
Set in Rome and in the Rogue River Valley of Oregon, reviewers praise Benjamin
for how this suspenseful love triangle weaves romance and deceit among the
rich imagery and tradition of the Catholic Church.
By turns poignant and shocking,Benjamin is at once a literary romance and a
contemporary thriller, rife with spiritual themes and stunning plot twists. A
must for readers who delight in a dramatic situation from which there is no
apparent escape…”By Eldon Thompson– author of The Legend of Asahiel:
