Fay Robinson's debut novel A MAN LIKE MAC is a true example of an author who knows how to involve her readers. The character that she creates leaves you feeling as if you are experiencing the tragedy life has dealt each of them. For anyone lucky enough to read this book it will leave you with a sense of satisfaction to know you have experienced something special.
Keely Wilson, a successful Olympic runner, is involved in accident which doctors predict will end her Olympic career. Refusing to accept the doctor's grim diagnose she turns to her former coach, John 'Mac' McCandless. She believes Mac will provide her the rehabilitation she needs to get her back on track for the Olympic gold. In finding Mac she is devastated to learn he also has been involved in an accident and is confined to a wheelchair. Mac McCandless has always held a secret infatuation with his once young track star Keely Wilson. Delighted to be given the opportunity to help Keely recover from her injuries he is unprepared for the reaction she has when she learns of his disability. Reviewing the medical records, he finds there is no hope for her to have a complete recovery. Now the challenge he is faced with is (1) to get Keely to accept her limitations, and (2) to get Keely to accept him as a man.
This book illustrates the true meaning of love and romance as well as to the phrase 'Love Conquers All.' Be warned, the tears and laughter are sure to flow once you open the first page of this book. Not only is the romance wonderful, it also provides insight about the challenges the disabled face on a daily basis.

I LOVED this book! I have about 100 Harlequins, and this is my favorite. I read it this past summer. It's a wonderful, sweet, funny, touching story. I loved how Mac was more comfortable with his handicap than Keely was. And Mac's friends, Alan and Vicki cracked me up! Ms. Robinson did her research and it shows. She helps you feel for Mac, but not to pity him. Once you start reading you will not be able to put this book down!

A car running a red light hits Olympic medalist Keely Wilson as she runs the streets of Midtown Atlanta. Rushed to a hospital, the medical team worries whether Keely will survive and if she does, whether she will ever walk again. The doctors believe her running career is over, but they do not know the obstinate Keely.

By telephone, Keely persuades her former college coach John McCandless to oversee her training. When Keely meets Mac at Courtland College where he is the athletic director, she is stunned to see he is wheelchair bound. Because of her lung injury, Mac knows she will never be a world class runner again, but he will do anything for the woman he has loved since he first met her as a teenager. As Keely begins her soft training, her attraction for Mac grows, but she still has not reconciled the fact that her hero is a paraplegic. If she ever does, these two physically injured people will find a lifetime of happiness.

A MAN LIKE MAC is an extremely sensitive look at the relationships between individuals with physical handicaps and those who are able-bodied. The lead protagonists are a warm duo and the support cast provides additional understanding to the audience. However, what makes Fay Robinson's novel a must read is the author's ability to escort her readers inside the heart and soul of her characters without turning them into weepy wrecks. Fans who enjoy a delicate, but potent contemporary romance starring enchanting individuals who will steal your heart will relish A MAN LIKE MAC.
