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?

    The Amish of Webster County series begins with a poignant story about an Amish woman, Kristi Lapp, who is involved in a buggy accident. Her rescuer is handsome Shane Zimmerman, who also happens to be the local veterinarian and her neighbor. His kind acts include visiting her in the hospital, taking care of her Siberian Husky, Chinook and being an encourager in many ways. Shane is recovering from the hurts that have brought him to Seymour for a fresh start while Kristi is burdened with the belief that she will never marry for love. After all what Amish man would want a wife who is unable to do the basic things any Amish woman takes care of. Although their friendship is not forbidden, Kristis family is concerned that a relationship between Kristi and Shane will cause Kristi to leave her Amish faith as her brother did. Will Kristi and Shane learn to trust God to heal them physically, emotionally and spiritually? Will they find forgiveness? This is a story of difficult decisions, faith, love and courage. I am looking forward to reading Books Two and Three.

    The opening paragraph reeled me in and I didnt want to stop reading Healing Love. Laura V. Hilton created another remarkable story and introduction to her series, The Amish of Webster County. The characters were well developed along with having true to life issues.

    Kristi Lapp, an Amish midwife, was injured in a buggy accident as she was on her way to deliver a baby. Shane Zimmerman, an English veterinarian, found Kristi and called 911 for an ambulance. Shane was attracted to Kristi and visited her in the hospital. Shane volunteered to care for her Siberian husky, Chinook, since Kristi suffered a fractured leg. The Lapps were Shanes neighbors. Kristis parents were in Florida at the time of the accident, but returned home once they were notified of her accident. Kristis father made it very plain to Shane he was not to see Kristi any more, after he observed their interactions in her hospital room.

    Shane continued to care for Chinook even though he could not see Kristi. When Shane found out Kristi was a midwife, he struggled more with the memories of his deceased wife and infant son. Shane knew he should forget Kristi as their lives were not the same, even though Shanes grandparents were Amish and he had visited them in his childhood. Their continued relationship would only result in someone being hurt.

    Real life problems surfaced that put Kristi and Shane together, like a neighbor rushing to Shanes office for his veterinarian service, as Kristis horse, Samson, had been injured by a bullet. Shanes sister, Sylvia, came to stay with him as her husband was being deployed. Sylvia is drawn to Kristi and wants a midwife for her delivery. How will their lives be affected if Kristi is seen at Shanes home? Why would God allow their attraction continue to be drawn to one another if they could not be together? An extraordinary recommendation may be the answer, but what impact will it have on all these loved characters?

    I cannot wait to read, Surrendered Love, book two in this moving and astonishing series. Ms. Hiltons books are not your normal Amish genre books. Healing Love is filled with true to life struggles, heartbreak, faith and romance along with action packed scenes.

    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!
