In this story, the reader follows the fairly normal day to day routine of a young woman named Anna. She has some questions about what she really wants from her life, isn’t sure if she is ready to settle down with just any young man, and has moved to a small community in Oklahoma. Things are pretty calm and ordinary…until they aren’t. Anna ends up gravely and irreversibly injured. She’s paralyzed.
There were many different emotions that I experienced while following Anna’s journey. Her despair at her situation was palpable, as was her frustration and sometimes even anger. It was painful to see her also being plagued by other health issues. Watching her family and close friends stick by her and try to help her any way they could was heartwarming. Seeing her grandmother praying scripture over her was beautiful.
And then one day, Anna is healed. It is impossible. It is miraculous. How can it even be true? There were many reactions to Anna’s healing. It was interesting to see the real heart nature of some people. The response that Anna received after her healing was very telling and seemed to be directly linked to the inner hurts of certain people.
Anna’s Healing was a beautiful story. It highlighted the importance of faith in a God who is still able to perform miracles. There is also a sweet romance flowing through the story that I enjoyed a lot. (5 stars)

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
The first thing you need to know about me is that I write Fiction full of GRACE. Every plot is different. The characters change. Some of my books are mysteries, others are novellas, and some are romances. But they all are stories of light, hope, and truth. Stories that at least for a moment touch the deepest places in our heart.
Tales that whisper hope. That speak of family and community. That remind us of God and His love.
What do I write? If I had to reduce it to four words, I suppose I’d say I write Fiction full of GRACE.
