Publisher's Description

Life gets a lot harder for Amish midwife Kristi Lapp when a buggy wreck lands her in the hospital and leaves her with a pronounced limp. Among her biggest concerns is the well-being of her dog, Chinook, as she is no longer able to keep up with the high-energy Siberian husky. Adding insult to injury, she fears she’ll never marry for love, for what man would willingly wed a woman who needs help with even the most basic of household tasks? Shane Zimmerman moved to Seymour for a fresh start. The veterinarian is still reeling from the loss of his young wife, who died in childbirth—an aneurysm, the autopsy determined, but he still blames the midwife and the herbal remedies she administered. He meets his next-door neighbor, Kristi, when he discovers her wrecked buggy and takes her to the hospital. Eager to deepen the friendship that forms between them, he offers to take care of exercising her dog. But the harsh words of Kristi’s father discourage him from pursuing a relationship further—for the time being. Shane isn’t Amish, although his grandparents were, and Ira Lapp would rather his daughter marry an aging Amish widower than a young Englischer. Despite all the forces that would keep them apart, Kristi and Shane can’t deny the strong attraction between them. So, their on-again, off-again relationship persists, as Kristi submits to physical therapy for her leg and Shane reevaluates his reasons for being Englisch. But will they find a way to stay together? Or are their differences too divisive to resolve?

    My Review:

    In life, the impossible is what challenges the human spirit. Whether it's in love, circumstances, or destinies we want to change; the indomitable essence of the vitality and substance of the heart cannot be changed or altered. When Kristi finds herself unable to do the simplest of tasks, life as she knows it comes to a screeching halt. Shane too, has pain in his past, and the differences between their lives seems impossible to bridge. Shane has a past that is waiting to be rediscovered. And Kristi has a past that echoes the reason why Shane no longer has a future.

    I loved the tension between the characters in this book. So many times relationships are rendered virtually unthinkable because of pasts, presents, and futures. Hilton plays all the cards in this novel, drawing us into the story until we can't help but love every little bit of it. My only point of contention was how Kristi kept complaining about English food. I felt it was rather unnecessary, but it served it's purpose to show what kind of person she was. Great reading, very educational in terms of midwifery, and the drama building up to the story's resolution was wonderful!

    Kristi Lapp, an Amish midwife, and Shane Zimmerman, an English veterinarian new to the area, meet when he notices her buggy turned over in a ditch. He stops to make sure no one is hurt and discovers Kristi. She's unconscious and he calls to have her transported to the hospital. Her parents are out of town so he stays with her daily until they return. When her parents return and her daed sees an attraction forming he demands that Shane stay away from Kristi.

    Shane tries to stay away from Kristi but it seems circumstances keep throwing them together. Kristi has a Siberian husky, Chinook, who needs exercise daily so Shane takes over doing that since Kristi can't walk and will need a lot of therapy. Even though they are each falling for the other, there are some things that are keeping them apart, she's Amish and he's English with Amish grandparents, neither one knows if they want to 'change' or if they want to ask the other to 'change'. Next is the fact that she's a midwife, he blames a midwife for the death of his wife and baby. Finally Kristi's daed is determined to marry her off to a good Amish man, even if he's already had three wives and has many children.

    I had been wanting this book for a long time, as well as the next two in the series. When I won the third book I mentioned that I was going to buy the first two and Laura was kind enough to send them to me, she really blessed me by doing so. I really enjoyed this book and I'm looking forward to reading the last two, Surrendered Love and Awakened Love. I would highly recommend this series to anyone that like reading Amish books.

    Oh, did I mention the fact that I was VERY surprised at the ending, I think you will be too. Wonderful job Laura!

    "Healing Love" is the most enjoyable book I have read in quite a while. Both Kristi and Shane are characters you would want to have as neighbors. Their journey to love was compelling to read. This book will put a smile on your face. In the midst of their own trials, Kristi and Shane portray godly character as they seek the best for the other, putting aside the longings in their own hearts. There are few authors whose books I look forward to reading, and Laura Hilton is among them. I'm sure the other books in this series will not disappoint.

    The first book in The Amish of Webster County series, Healing Love, is captivating. Well written characters, strong romantic pull and the conflict of Amish and Englischer kept my attention to the very end. I found this book hard to put down and could not figure out which way the story was going to go. Would Kristi choose to leave her Amish family and be shunned? Or would Shane give up the life he was used to and turn Amish in order to be with Kristi? The author surprised me and kept me guessing till the end. I recommend this book to any fans of Amish fiction.
