Healing Love

By Laura V. Hilton


Life gets a lot harder for Amish midwife Kristi Lapp
when a buggy wreck lands her in the hospital and leaves
her with a pronounced limp. Among her biggest concerns is
the well-being of her dog, Chinook, as she is no longer able
to keep up with the high-energy Siberian husky. Adding
insult to injury, she fears she’ll never marry for love, for
what man would willingly wed a woman who needs help
with even the most basic of household tasks?
Shane Zimmerman moved to Seymour for a fresh start.
The veterinarian is still reeling from the loss of his young
wife, who died in childbirth—an aneurysm, the autopsy
determined, but he still blames the midwife and the
herbal remedies she administered. He meets his next-door
neighbor, Kristi, when he discovers her wrecked buggy and
takes her to the hospital. Eager to deepen the friendship that
forms between them, he offers to take care of exercising her
dog. But the harsh words of Kristi’s father discourage him
from pursuing a relationship further—for the time being.
Shane isn’t Amish, although his grandparents were, and
Ira Lapp would rather his daughter marry an aging Amish
widower than a young Englischer.
Despite all the forces that would keep them apart, Kristi
and Shane can’t deny the strong attraction between them.
So, their on-again, off-again relationship persists, as
Kristi submits to physical therapy for her leg and Shane
reevaluates his reasons for being Englisch. But will they
find a way to stay together? Or are their differences too
divisive to resolve?


"Healing Love is the perfect title for this book since it all starts with Kristi Lapp's buggy wreck. I wanted her to be able to marry her true love even though he wasn't Amish. Shane Zimmerman, a vet"
