The Healing by Jonathan Odell
The Healing

meeshbv26, January 1, 2013

I had a difficult time putting The Healing down. I found my heart pained for Gran Gran. I wanted to see her story resolved, but also wasn't sure if I was prepared for it. I finally gave in and sat and read. I needed to finish it. I was not disappointed. The ending to Gran Gran's story was beautiful and perfect. I, too, felt healed.

There was so many moments where after reading a line or passage I had to stop and pause. A silent, contemplative "wow" passed through my mind before I could continue.

I've shared this amazing book with my mom and my sister, who were not disappointed. You won't be either! This book has affected me greatly, both the characters as well as the power and grace of Odell's storytelling.

I highly recommended the Author's Notes, only after you read the book in its entirety. The details of Odell's family and upbringing only add to the richness of The Healing.
