"Poignant love story"
They met when they were children at Trevor House, an
orphanage located in the greater Chicago area. They looked
out for one another and supported each other emotionally.
When they grew up, they moved into an apartment together
and changed their surname to O'Malley. Though not bound by
blood, they were a family in every sense of the word. Even
when they went their own ways, they still visited with each
other and communicated via the telephone.
Rachel O'Malley works for the Red Cross as a trauma
psychologist, helping people cope with tragedy. Her latest
assignment is in Chicago, helping flood victims deal with
the aftermath of losing most of their possessions. When
she needs somebody to lean on, fire fighter captain Cole
Parker is there for her. Cole, who wants to marry Rachel,
also supports her during her sister's illness and when she
is involved in a school shooting that is linked to a
homicide case her sister is working hard to solve.
THE HEALER is a poignant love story, a five handkerchief
reading experience that readers will never be able to
forget because it is so beautiful. The heroine of this
novel is a very special woman who gives of herself no
matter the cost while Cole is her caring anchor. Dee
Henderson is a brilliant storyteller who constantly writes
tales that the audience wants to read.
