Book Review: Healing Grace by Lisa Lickel

When Grace Runyan experiences the loss of her husband, she moves to escape her pain and her past. She rents a home in a small Michigan town next door to a seriously  ill man with a young son. Grace’s personal tragedy and hurts run deep. The  more we get to know her, the more secrets we learn about her. As she begins to care for the little boy, and finds herself also attracted to his father, she is filled with turmoil, afraid to change giving her heart to yet another person she may lose.

Lickel slowly reveals more about Grace as the story unfolds. She’s a physician’s assistant with an extra something, a gift of healing which is both a blessing and curse. The fact that she wasn’t able to heal her husband or prevent her son and parents from dying haunts her and she blames herself.  An interesting and tender story on several levels. Those who have experienced deep loss may find themselves identifying with Grace who has been through so much.  I give this four out of five stars.
