The Irish Healer by Nancy Herriman



Accused of murdering a child under her care, Irish healer Rachel Dunne flees the ensuing scandal while vowing to never sit at another sickbed. She no longer trusts in her abilities-or God's mercy. But when a cholera epidemic sweeps through London, she feels compelled to nurse the dying daughter of the enigmatic physician she has come to love. James Edmunds, wearied by the deaths of too many patients, has his own doubts about God's grace. Can they each face their darkest fears? Or is it too late to learn that trust and love just might heal their hearts? 



About The Author


Nancy Herriman left an engineering career to take up the pen. She hasn’t looked back. Her work has won the RWA Daphne du Maurier award and when not writing, she enjoys singing, gabbing about writing, and eating dark chocolate. After two decades in Arizona, she now lives in her home state of Ohio with her family.


My Review

While I did find this story predictable, I did enjoy the story, and was page turning for answers.

Can't imagine leaving home under the circumstances Rachel Dunne leaves Ireland and ends up in London. Working no less for a doctor, but in the end she is right where she should be!

This story has a bit of everything, London is being hit with a cholera epidemic, we also have jealous help, and a bit of sweet romance. The author did a great job of melding all of the above into a enjoyable read!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Worthy Books, and was not required to give a positive review.
