READ Healing Springs

Healing SpringsType to let Selene retreat from life and succumb to self pity not if she has anything to say in that matter Maybe that’s why Amy was the last person Selene wanted to see when she returned to Healing Springs Fortunately for Selene her friends and family were having none of it They would find a way to reach Selene and show her that she still had worthand in Amy’s casethat she was still worthy of love This novel is dedicated to all the strong women out there that wake up every day and struggle with disabilities both visible and invisible Your fight is what inspired this novel You ladies rock Loosely based on the short story The Potter’s Wheel. Curiouser and CuriouserOh how I loved this book I adore stories with a touch of the supernatural and this book teased so well I found the tale captivating mesmerizing compelling and than a bit mystifying Even though I wanted to race to see where the story would take me I also had a need to go slowly so I could savour each and every wordI could totally relate to Selene My pain while not as drastic as hers still at times makes me bitter angry and in too much agony to deal with day to day activities I can understand her frustration I also find myself angry with the forces that brought me to this new reality Its nice to read about a lead character who is so much like me less than whole physically This book is beautiful and haunting sweet and harsh and full of things that will make you think It is a wonder and I feel richer in spirit for reading it
