Review: Healing Love
`Healing Love` is an inspirational fiction novel by author Jennifer Slattery.
Brooke Endress is a news reporter with a chance in a lifetime of being a co-anchor on t.v. Her young sister, Aubrey, wants to go on a missions trip with the church youth group. Their parents say Brooke must go on the mission trip too if Aubrey goes. Brooke wants to stay home and be on t.v., she wants nothing to do with the mission trip.
Both girls go on the trip and work in an all girls orphanage. Brooke has fallen in love with the orphanage girls, she has an interest in one of the El Salvadoran male workers, too. She realizes once she gets back home, in America, she won't see these people again so she reminds herself she can't fall in love with these people, she is only here for two weeks.
I liked this book because it touches on every emotion, keeping the book interesting. There is a great twist at the end, and it sparked my interest in missionaries. Sometimes tears would come to my eyes, other times I experienced joy in how the orphans were treated at the orphanage. I once had a chance to go on a mission trip to Jamaica and I turned it down. Reading books like this makes me wonder how different my life would be if I had gone. I do regret not going, but maybe the timing wasn't right. There were some sexual overtones that I didn't care for, so I give this book 4* out of 5*.
I recommend this book to fans of inspirational fiction.
I would like to thank author Jennifer Slattery for sending me the ebook. All opinions are my own.
