The Healing

The Healing

A rich, poignant eBook about a family’s emotional struggles after the father, a firefighter, becomes ill—and the healing power of love and hope.

Karen and Mike Donnelly were a happy, normal married couple with a teenaged daughter. Mike, a firefighter, was a hero to both his wife and daughter. Then Mike is stricken with multiple sclerosis—and as his health begins to deteriorate, so does the family. Quitting her job to become Mike’s caretaker, Karen is both overwhelmed and devastated—especially when their daughter Lori falls into destructive behavior, adding to Karen’s burden.

Seeking comfort and relief, Karen moves them to her family’s old summer house on Long Island. She wonders, why did this tragedy strike her family? Searching for solace, Karen reflects on the comfort of her happier past—and when a mysterious woman with a special gift comes into her life, Karen finally feels hopeful about the future.

Vividly told and emotionally complex, The Healing raises universal questions about love, identity, loss, and forgiveness.
