    One thought on “The Healing Tree”

    1. In many ways, there was nothing special or unique about this story (it was obvious from the first two chapters what the ending would be), but yet it was still a very enjoyable read. The two main characters are both entertaining. Although they are the standard perfect people (for about the first 5 chapters the guy could not be mentioned without being called handsome), they do not come across as overbearingly goody two-shoes (although for him and his orphans it does come close). I will say that th [...]

    2. There was quite a lot to like about this book, and I would certainly give it 3.5 stars if that rating was available. The author writes well, is a good story teller, and offers a creative plot. I liked the characters, and thought they were well developed. And even though the villain is hateful and destructive, the author has shown us that his behavior is rooted in mental illness. His mental illness is believable, so this was no caricature villain.I'm giving this book a 3 because of the religious [...]

    3. When I purchased the book, it was in a bundle with others and so I did not know it was a Christian historical romance. Not that that is a problem. However, I am not religious, and had to battle with the fact that the hero kept trying to talk the heroine into believing his ideas and faith. I felt like he should have let her find G-d on her own considering all of the things that she has been through. I also didn't like the heroine in the novel because she annoyed me to the point that I wanted to y [...]

    4. Read as part of the Timeless Quills: Timeless bundle. Regency Romance. G-Rated. Well done. Christian romance. Lily is the only child of Lord Artemisia. He is obsessed with his title and finding a way to pass it down. Maybe his worthless daughter can be of some use after all by marrying her off to someone willing to be his heir. Lily has had the strictest of childhoods. Closer to abuse. She is not allowed to show emotion and must be perfect at all times or be punished. Even an allergic reaction i [...]

    5. The only thing saving this book from one star is that my interest is genuinely held by the pacing of the book, the characters' fates, and the concept of a Christian regency romance. Otherwise, this is painful to read. The kindle edition is chock full of misspellings, horrible grammar, and incorrect punctuation. And the general narrative is choppy and contrived. I think this could have been a very good book with a better editor, telling the author not only about the awful grammar and spelling, bu [...]

    6. I had given up on Christian romance this book has renewed my interest. So often Christian romance is so preachy and filled with annoying characters that are so bent on some "righteous" way that the message of God's love is lost. This story is told so that you are entertained (the whole point of fiction) but doesn't leave out the importance of God (the whole point of life). I truly enjoyed the characters but I kept back the 5th stars because it was a bit typical for a historical romance. I did li [...]

    7. Overall I enjoyed this book. The relationship between Lily and Max slowly developed over time which I liked. I loved Max's character. He was honorable, loyal, handsome and Godly - a great hero. I enjoyed watching Lily's growth in both her love for Max and her knowledge of God. The only downside of the story was Lily's father. He was a true villain and I truly did not like him. There was a part in the book that told of the extent of her father's evil. It gave Lily's character more depth, but I di [...]

    8. I really liked this book. The heroine was very strong-willed and intelligent and it was refreshing to see considering the time period. I enjoyed her creative ways in trying to avoid an unhappy marriage. This is a Christian romance and so there are some definite religious overtones especially towards the end. However, I thought it was an enjoyable read and the characters were well developed. Like a previous reviewer, I would give it 3.5 stars.

    9. Intriguing!Though there were a few misspelled words, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story. The characters' situations were interesting and kept me guessing. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

    10. A great story where the setting is wonderful, the heroine is a darling and the feel good end is just brilliant. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
