Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
What Death Can Touch by Robert Miskimon is a compelling novel of grief, renewal, and so much more. A recovering alcoholic is confronted with the death of his daughter, and through his pain he learns that life is but a prelude. What Death Can Touch is a well written, engaging, highly recommended story that considers death as the gate to a higher level of spirituality and makes for insightful, contemplative reading.

    A challenging look at death, afterlife

    This is rather heavy going, but worth it. Most people would rather not think about death and the afterlife, but Miskimon has given the matter more than a little thought. There's a strange dichotomy between the surface story of a newspaperman struggling to get his life in order and the under-story that death is there to gobble up everything no matter what we do. It left me feeling a little disconcerted. But I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to delve into this topic. It will challenge your comfort zone!

    Coping with the death of a child

    I read this in two sittings. It's the engaging story of a journalist who fights against alcoholism and the grief that follows the shattering loss of his daughter. Besides investigating the story of a man in turmoil, it gives the reader a good look at the ins and outs of producing a weekly newspaper in a small city where the great and near great engage in political wheeling and dealing (California's Carmel-by-the-Sea). We follow the inner and outer life of newspaperman Peter Danforth from his struggles in California to a surprising climax in the Pacific Northwest.
