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.
L. Mosz lives in southwestern Montana. She enjoys writing and the great outdoors. Her other hobbies include bike riding, hiking, cooking, reading, and traveling to Arizona to visit her 93-year-old mother. She works in a rehab center.
When she was a child, she didn’t like school and cried every day of the first grade. From a large family, she preferred to stay at home and play with her brothers and sisters. While being teased by schoolmates and criticized by the teacher at school every day, she also missed her mother. Later in life with children of her own, she tried not to pass her dislike of the school setting on to them. But they seemed to inherit the trait nevertheless and insisted on being homeschooled, which was all the rage at the time. So for many long years she work evenings and homeschooled days, an exhausting undertaking. However, the kids grew up to graduate from college and go on to graduate or law school. At long last, there was finally some spare time to write and ride her bike.
Thus far R. L. Mosz has published two novels, but there were many other previous manuscripts that never quite made it to publication. Currently she is working on a third, which she hopes to publish by the summer of 2015.
