Publisher's Summary

Rachel O'Malley works disasters for a living. Her specialty is helping children through trauma. For years Rachel has touched grief as she helps others through it, but now grief is something very personal - she is losing her own sister to cancer.

Helping the other O'Malleys through the crisis is taking everything Rachel has to give. When a school shooting rips through her community, she must lean hard against God to find the strength to help the children. For there is more than just sorrow confronting her, there's a secret. One of the students was there. One of them witnessed the shooting. And the murder weapon is still missing.

A beautiful ending

The Healer does a beautiful job of wrapping up the story of the O'Malley family. Even so, how about one more book book, Dee? Tell us about the second generation of O'Malleys.

Excellent story, veryreal

I debated finishing this because the details of Jennifer's illness were exactly like my sister's, but I did. I cried through the whole book. Ms. Henderson must have gone through something like this in her own life. Excellent book!

This one made me emotional.

This series is so worth your time. Good stories and good character development. Wonderful stories. This one made me cry though. Rough. I just wish the recording was done more carefully. There were people lounging in some bits. You could tell they weren’t supposed to be there.

Awesomeness,is this book!

I thought it was very very emotional but also very good I think that this book was narrated by a very talented narrator, and, that I recommend this book to any single person who is looking for faith. I thought that this book was very good, and if you like books and you also LOVE The Lord that you should wholeheartedly support this book and furthermore as this book is the greatest that I have seen I will recommend it has five stars for anyone who is rolling to read it and as a final note to Jennifer O'Malley.
