The Healer's Touch is a very simple Christian fiction/romance novel. It's an historical novel set in the Old West. There wasn't anything deep or momentous in this read, but it was a decent story with a somewhat interesting plot.


Lyric's mother is plagued with a mental illness so people leave them alone- far alone. None of the folks from nearby Joplin, Missouri want to get anywhere near them. The presence of a very strange and creepy light that occurs near their home place doesn't help matters. (The author explains the very real phenomenon of this light in the introduction.) But a mysterious man- who happens to be a U.S. marshal crashes into her barn one day running from the light. Lyric helps the man and cares for him as he recovers. But as they grow closer, she is concerned about the fact of her mentally ill mother.

There wasn't much depth to this read. The characters were not developed extremely well, so I didn't feel as if I got to know them very much. The plot was interesting but not very believable. I was interested enough to want to keep reading and find out the conclusion.

I can recommend it as a simple, short read. I give it 3 stars and a G rating for content.
