The End of the War – The Thorn Healer Giveaway

by | Nov 10, 2018 | Fiction Book Reviews | 28 comments

I am so excited for this weekend because it marks the 100-year anniversary of the end of World War 1 – a war of devastating casualties and a shift in warfare. Today I wanted to share a little about the third book in my Historical series, The Thorn Healer. This story is near to my heart for several reasons. But few of them are…

TTH Quote 2

It takes place in my Blue Ridge Mountains in the real mountain town of Hot Springs, NC (only an hour up the road from where I live).

I love the history behind this story. It was so interesting to learn about the German Internment camps in the U.S. during WW1.

I LOVE the hero. August Rheinhold is a beautiful example of Christ’s pursuing love.

About the Book

Jessica Ross’ scars run much deeper than the wounds of a world at war. Determined to escape the ghosts of her past and the German influence on her nightmares, she returns home to the sleepy Appalachian town of Hot Springs, NC, only to find the renowned Mountain Park Hotel has been converted into a ‘prison’ for displaced Germans and, much to Jessica’s dismay, her grandparents have befriended one of them. 

TTH Quote.jpgAugust Reinhold has not only found kinship with Jessica’s grandparents, but as they share their granddaughter’s letters from the Front, he discovers a surprising bond drawing him toward the independent and beautiful woman. Displaced by a war and a painful history, he finds Hot Springs and the intriguing, Jessica Ross, a tempting place to start over. Determined to scale the heights of her bitterness and show her the power of love, August faces more than just Jessica’s resistance, but a more devious design to harm the civilian sailors housed in Hot Springs. 

Will August’s tender pursuit show Jessica the healing and hope she needs, or will bitterness force her into the hands of a ‘true’ enemy waiting to destroy much more than her heart?
