Book Review: Anna's Healing by Vannetta Chapman

 Anna's Healing



Anna's Healing (Plain and Simple Miracles)


From Amazon:

Anna’s Healing is the first book in a brand-new collection from popular author Vannetta Chapman. These stories of love and family and Amish community in Oklahoma tell of the miracles that can happen when lives are lived in service to God and to one another.
When a tornado strikes the farms surrounding Cody’s Creek, Anna Schwartz’s life is changed forever. She suffers a spinal cord injury and suddenly finds herself learning to live as a paraplegic.
Three people—Chloe Roberts, Jacob Graber, and Ruth Schwartz—join forces to help Anna through her darkest days. Chloe is an Englischer who writes for the local paper. Jacob has recently arrived in town and stays on as a hired hand at her uncle’s. And Ruth is her grandmother, a woman of deep faith and a compassionate spirit.
Then one morning Anna wakes and finds herself healed. How did it happen? Why did it happen? And what is she to do now? Her life is again turned upside down as the world’s attention is drawn to this young Amish girl who has experienced the unexplainable.

My thoughts:

In just a little while it seemed Anna's Healing soon had me turning the pages.  I became so engrossed in Anna's everyday struggle with her new reality that I even forgot the name of the book. 

Vannetta Chapman great storytelling had me laughing and the next minute crying.  With the detailed descriptions I could hear the roar of the tornado passing through, I could see the corn growing over my head, and imagine myself stopping by the small fruit stand.

Anna's Grandmother Ruth was so inspiring and she remained my favorite character throughout.  She was a prayer warrior that never stopped believing and having faith. She had incredible strength to be there everyday and never wavered under the pressure.  

What a great story that seemed so true to life.  It even had me wondering a time or two if this was a true story!   

A Wonderful Wonderful Read!
