The Healer - new release


Book Blurb:
How do you escape a life of conflict and abuse?

Being a young girl in 1940’s Ireland isn’t easy for Molly, especially since she isn’t like others. Her family and community are wary of the beautiful child. 

As Molly becomes a teenager life gets harder and she loses faith in everything. 

Molly is surrounded in danger. She must make choices. But will she chose the right path or is she doomed to a life of misery? Will she survive in a world of violence and crime? Will The Healer ever be healed?



Wow. What a story. As I sit here trying to write this review I know my words are not going to give this book the justice it deserves.

Molly McCarthy. What an amazing character. My heart broke for her  so many times. 

Set in Ireland in the 1940s I found this to be an interesting yet heart breaking story. Life wasn’t easy back then but it was so much worse for Molly with her circumstances. Her strength shines throughout the story. 

I found this to be a heavy kinda read. I can normally whiz through a book but this is not one of those kinda reads. I felt as if I was feeling this book rather than reading it. 

I’m so looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.
