The Healer’s Touch
By: Lori Copeland
Publisher: Harvest House Publishers
Rural Bolton Holler, Ozarks, Missouri
Folklore? Reality? You decide.
Lyric Bolton had always longed for acceptance in her community of Bolton Holler, but with her mother having an unnamed illness the community dubbed her as a mad woman, thus leaving Lyric and her younger sister to live in isolation.
Because of the mysterious appearance of a light, the locals call the “spooklight”; Ian Cawley literally bolts into Lyric’s life. She finds him in her barn near death. She thinks he might be an outlaw of the Younger gang and wonders if it is worth her while to nurse him back to health, knowing he will just be hung in the end. As he continues to improve, she begins to doubt he is a wanted man. However since he has amnesia he cannot tell her who he is.
“The Healer’s Touch” captured my interest from the first page. What is not to love when you are mixing Historical romance with legend/folklore and mystery? The characters were well developed. Lyric had such a kind loving heart along with just enough resentment to make her character believable.
If you want an afternoon of easy entertainment…this book has it. It will make you laugh and make you want to cry.
