The Keeper is a thought-provoking contemporary drama that explores the mysterious power of friendship and love. The atypical romance within this PG-rated novel weaves its way through a psychological story of human relationships and social satire.
The protagonist, Dr. Christopher Seacrest, is chief of staff in a renowned medical facility and is one of the world’s shining stars. Immersed in his self-sufficiency and false ideals of perfection, he lives immune to the fact that he has somehow disavowed life itself. A brief patient-doctor meeting in an exam room between the arrogant Chris and the unpretentious Caitlin Rosenberry soon changes all of that.
Initially the powerhouse surgeon finds little of interest to him in the young, post-stroke patient, but their meeting results in the physician’s perfect façade developing a hairline crack. Fate brings the unlikely pair together again and again, and sets a series of cataclysmic events into motion from which there is no turning back. When Dr. Seacrest finds himself in love with Caitlin and she vows never to see him again, he can no longer deny life’s invitation to his own healing.
