A heartwarming story about two people trying to make a connection. Jubilee Jenkins is a young woman diagnosed with a rare, life-threatening allergy to human skin cells. Her first and only kiss triggered an anaphylactic reaction that nearly killed her and turned her into an agoraphobe for nine years. Necessity forces her out into the world where she meets Eric, a divorced, single dad trying to understand and communicate with his rebellious, teenage daughter and grief-stricken, adopted son. Each holds a key that helps the other reach their goal. A truly enjoyable read!— Shirley Cagle
“It was just a kiss, but it nearly killed her. Jubilee is allergic to people. She can't be touched by strangers, well-meaning or not. She retreats into her shell, away from the world, but her high school years pass, then her parents are gone, and, finally, she must move out into the world or die. She finds a home for her quiet life in a library, until Eric finds her and insists that she discover the truth of a life lived without fear. Close Enough is filled with real life, real people, and the search for happiness that we all recognize. It is a truly moving story from a rare gem of an author.”
