These Healing Hills
These Healing Hills is the latest from Ann H. Gabhart. You will meet Francine Howard on the opening pages of this tale. She suffers the loss of her fiance, Seth, when she learns he has found someone new, after serving in the war overseas. Now Francine must find a new purpose for her life. She decides to leave her job, as a nurse in Cincinnati, Ohio, and join the Frontier Nursing Service in the rugged hills of eastern Kentucky!
You will walk the hills with Francine, as she attempts to learn the people and the area of her new home. She soon meets Woody Locke, the youngest son in the Locke family, and definitely the most talkative! Woody definitely helps Francine learn more about her new surroundings. The Locke family soon rejoices when their eldest son, Ben, returns safely from his time in the war. Now Ben must figure out what to do next. Will he stay with his family or find a new path outside his life in the mountains?
It is interesting to see how God works in both Francine and Ben's lives to point them toward His plans for their lives. Seth shows up in the midst of Francine's new world and further complicates her decision!
I received this book from Revell in exchange for my unbiased review.
