Acclaim for Peter Michael Rosenberg




"An accomplished storyteller"




Kissing Through a Pane of Glass


Winner of the Betty Trask Award




"A deep and insightful portrayal of tortured love... powerful and disturbing"


"A disturbing cautionary tale about the danger of demanding your heart's desire... a compelling guide to romantic pain and responsibility"



"Very readable... Rosenberg writes about sex with a beguiling honesty"



"The story is a moving one, skilfully told"


"A touching story"


"An impressive debut"


"A wonderfully written and at times quite chilling story of obsessive love... I am convinced we have a major new novelist breaking through here"




Touched by a God or Something


"Enjoyable and tautly paced... Mr Rosenberg has proved that his third novel will have an eager audience"


"This is a great novel, full of intrigue, invention and superb characterisation – Peter Michael Rosenberg is a superb modern novelist who writes with skill, style and great imagination. Roll on the third novel!"


"After finding this book in a library the description grabbed me enough to give it a try. I'm glad I did. It's a solid story neatly written and with exactly the kind of ending I like in a book - anything but happily ever after. It confidently touches on the subject of gender roles and leaves you thinking long after reading it. I went on to read most of Peter Michael Rosenbergs books and found them enjoyable too. None stayed with me as much as this one. It's a shame that Rosenberg's books aren't as popular as they deserve to be."
– Amazon 5 star review




Because It Makes My Heart Beat Faster


"A dark tale which touches on the latent violence lurking beneath the most civilized of exteriors... compelling"




Daniel's Dream


"I read 'Daniel's Dream' while on holiday some years ago and it's a terrific read. Rosenberg's writing really shines in the vivid dream sequences where the main character, suffering from the effects of a serious accident, finds another existence in a remote Greek village. You can almost smell the Greek food and feel the warmth of the sun as you're reading it. I've read a couple of other Peter Michael Rosenberg books ('Touched By A God Or Something' & 'Because It Makes My Heart Beat Faster') and he seems to have the ability to create stories and characters that stay with you long after you've read the last page. For a well written and ultimately moving story `Daniel's Dream' comes highly recommended. –
Amazon 5 star review
















For Therese Campbell

Chapter 1



I find it easy to love. I come from a loving, demonstrative family. My father cuddled me as a child - we still greet each other with a hug and a kiss - and my mother showered me with care and affection. Words of love and comfort were scrawled across the blank pages of my early life, and like blotting paper I soaked up every inky drop, until my soul was stained permanently blue-black with the excesses of my parents’ affection. I became saturated with all that touching and kissing and warmth. Is it any wonder that in my adult life I have searched for women who will wring me dry, women to whom I can give some of that excess love?
