My Comments: “The Healing” is classic Wanda Brunstetter. If you enjoy her Amish books, you will love this as well. Bits and pieces of this story remind me of other books I have read and enjoyed written by Ms. Brunstetter. The romance in this book is sweet. I wonder if life in Amishland is really like it is portrayed in these books. Does anyone have first hand knowledge?
I received my e-copy from NetGalley.
