From the creative mind of Aminah Paden, comes a new book, The EMPATH. The Story: David Pruitt is an empath. An optometrist by profession, he can see and feel when others are hurting or need help. One quirky side-effect of his gift is that his connection to others can affect his own life. If he’s not careful, he’ll find himself in an alternate reality that is the mirror image of someone else’s thoughts and feelings.
