Lyric Bolton has been caring for her ailing mother and tiring but sweet younger sister, Lark, for so long she almost feels as if she's the mother of the house. She's not bitter or upset...at least not with her family. The town she's lived in as long as she could remember has pretty much shunned her and her family just as long. All due to her mothers illness. Actually, the spooklight floating and bouncing around windows and people doesn't help either but Lyric's used to it...and she wants out. Biding her time until her poor mother passes on, Lyric plans their escape route out of their friendless town. Stepping out to investigate a loud noise in the night she's surprised, and horrified, to find a dying outlaw, at least she assumes he's an outlaw, inside her bashed in barn. Lyric quickly assesses the situation and calls the sheriff on the half-dead handsome man claiming memory loss. When the sheriff takes days and days to show up due to her family's 'reputation', Lyric feels herself drawn to the man she endearingly calls, Joseph. Can they find the truth-and love-together no matter the cost? And when a surprising, gripping secret threatens to bring Lyric down, will she remember to stand tall no matter what she believed to be true?
Ian Cawley is hot on someone's tail. Or at least he was until an unexpected turn of events leads him straight through a beautiful girl's barn door. Now, with memory loss, a suspecting sister, and too giggly unabashed girls, he struggles to learn the truth of his identity. When unexpected changes of heart changes his mind, does Ian really want to know his name? Or would he rather live off the grid with a woman of a tender heart? Will he even be given the chance?
*What I liked*
I loved this book...it was different, special and the names were so unique! I have a special friend named Ian and that just made it better. The cover is one of my new favorites and my grandfather loved this as well. Add in some humor and you have pretty closed to perfect!
*What I didn't like*
The only reason I didn't like some of the action in this book is because I am one big chicken. In all honesty though, you may do some skimming towards the end because there is some pretty stomach turning stuff in there.
I give The Healers Touch... 4 stars!
*Why my rating is what it is*
My rating is 4 stars because, while it may not be at the very top of your tbr list if your looking for a high amount of romance, it's still a wonderful book and I'm so glad I had the pleasure of reading it!
