The family of Dr. Stuart Hayes moves to the town of Hillbrooke, Michigan unaware that God is a God of divine appointments. His wife, Samantha, is overcome with the task of caring for their two daughters; ten year old Baylee born with a birth defect and Isabelle who is fourteen, disrespectful and rebellious. The Hayes family is broken, sick and searching. Will they find healing?
Healing may come in different ways, but always brings the sick and wounded into relationship with The Healer!
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. Psalm 20:7 (NIV)
Page after page The Healer captured my attention and wouldn't let me go. I had a hard time putting this book down at night and I couldn't wait for the next day to pick it up again. I was captured by the real life circumstances and happenings that were described so well. It was like the author had, at times, peaked in to my world.
The character descriptions were perfect from the mouthy young teenager, to those boundless energy boys, and then to the evil doer. My favorite character though was Jean. I loved the overflowing peace she brought to everyone and let them know that God was there helping us at all times.
You know, I should have expected the crying that overcame me but I didn't. It was just so sudden and lasted a long time after I closed the book.
A wonderful, wonderful read that will stay with you forever.
This book was given to me by the author. This is my honest opinion.
