Once it started rolling, this book was extremely hard to put down! Lisa J. Lickel’s characters draw you in, and you end up really caring about what happens to them. This book was very enjoyable. It’s the perfect read for a lazy afternoon.
As always happens with Lisa's books, I was hooked on "Healing Grace" by chapter one. I'm the kind of reader that shuts a book never to open it again, if by chapter one, I'm not fully engaged with the characters and more than mildly curious about the plot. I'm a tough one to please!!
But Lisa's writing always pleases me. Without fail, I can count on her stories to be the kind I grump about having to put down when the kids' bellies need to be filled. Drat those hunger pangs!
So I wasn't surprised when "Healing Grace" dug its fingers into my heart. Grace's pain was so vivid, her dilemma so complex, I HAD to know what happened. Would she choose to heal Ted? And how exactly does she do that healing stuff anyway?
The author is an expert at taking the ordinary and twisting it into something just different enough to become refreshing and intriguing. In "Healing Grace" she gave spiritual gifts a dose of steroids...
What if the gift of healing resided at the tips of a woman's fingers? What if the act of healing others caused her physical pain? How would she use the gift? Or would she have the courage to use it at all? What if her gift failed her, and the person she loved most died a slow, agonizing death?
I doubt I would have done any differently than Grace. I'd have run and refused to use the gift again. But at some point, the running has to stop and the healing must begin again. It's Grace's own journey to healing that kept me clicking that "page forward" button on my Kindle.
You will too. Promise!
By just reading the book's title, you may think this book is about a woman named Grace who has the ability to heal people. And you would be right. But "Healing Grace" has a double meaning. It is a book about Grace, a woman who is grieving over a tremendous loss, even when she possesses the gift of healing.

No matter what spiritual gifts we have been given, the truth is, we are still human and do not have a full view of our lives, nor how or even if, our lives influence another person. We also cannot see the future of our loved ones. Thus is the case for our main character, Grace Runyon.

In this story, Lickel's characters don't have easy answers. In fact, sometimes they don't have answers at all. Lickel allows her characters to ask tough questions like why prayers go unanswered, why we suffer loss, and why, sometimes, a healing touch works while another time it may not.

As I read book, I thought of a couple of things: Hawthorne's "Scarlet Letter," the Salem witch trials, and Anne Boleyn. Why? Because these women were judged without evidence of their wrongdoings.

Lickel does a nice job of keeping the reader turning pages. I liked her use of the Petoskey stone and that it is both a rock and a fossil. I felt a slight metaphor, that the stone only shows its fossils when it is wet. Who do we become, when under pressure? Do we stay true to who we are or change to fit into what the world tells us we should be? Another way I also looked at the Petoskey stone as a metaphor with regard to our lives is this: Dare we reveal who we really are? Can we risk doing so without fear of rejection?

My only complaint in this book was from a publishing standpoint. I counted more than 20 typos in this book. How can two ".." be missed at a sentence's end?

I give Lickel kudos for tackling a hard subject for today's reader and thank her for writing this compelling novel.
I saw the ending coming. But that's only because I got to read this one before it was published. Insert big cheesy grin here.

No, seriously, it was my pleasure to read Lisa J. Lickel's book, Healing Grace. Lisa is one of my fantabulous critique partners and I got to read the end of this one when we first met. So for me, it was interesting to see how the book started.

It's the story of Grace Runyon. Grace is from a small town in Tennessee, a Christian community where gifts of the Spirit are alive and well. Grace has the gift of healing. Or at least, she did. But then tragedy up-ends her life in a major way and she runs as far as she can, all the way to the town of East Bay, Michigan. There she tries to recover from her loss.

Only to find herself on the verge of a new one. The house she buys belonged to a single father named Ted Marshall. Ted is battling serious health problems that will likely prove to be fatal. Even though Grace is still suffering from the traumatic scars of her previous life, she finds herself falling in love with Ted. That's a problem, because it seems as if God and her gift have abandoned her. What can she do when she's falling in love with a man that she could have healed but can't anymore?

Lisa's book was great. You really feel for Grace as she tries to cope with her loss and tries to construct a new life for herself. It isn't as easy as it sounds, especially since there are undercurrents in East Bay that threaten to take her down. Lisa especially weaves together some great mental images with her words, conjuring up the area around East Bay and making it live. And Eddy Marshall, Ted's son, has to be the most precocious fictional kid I've met in a long time.

So go and check this one out for yourself. You won't be disappointed!
Lisa Lickel's success continues with the publication of Healing Grace. An intensely emotional portrayal of women's fictional inspiration. Grace, the heroine, has a talent as a medical doctor enriched with a touch of magic. When the magic fails her in the death of her critically ill husband, she runs from her haven of security to start anew. Holding on to her faith, Grace painfully builds a new life. Her security and belief in herself is again tested with the need for her medical magic when the touch of romance brings another ill man into her life.
Grace's life is about healing. Others and herself.
Ms. Lickel's characters will take your emotions through a rainbow of events and leave you waiting for her next novel.
