  • This book is not my usual genre - I tend to like mystery, sci-fi, fantasy or anything else that gets me away from real life for a while. And, frankly, the book jacket makes it look like it's written just for women, which initially offended me. But I'm SO GLAD I didn't judge the book by it's cover (!!!). Yes, this is not escape literature - it's a hard look at real life problems. And that's precisely why this book helped me to understand and see what was needed when my dad became terminally ill.

  • Once again Pergamo nails the NYC and summer town setting and world building. The story of Karen and Mike's daughter Lori was one of the most, if not the most compassionate renderings of someone struggling with depression and addiction and its effect on a family that I have ever read.The love story between Karen and Mike, their struggle to connect in the face of his terminal illness, and their path back to each other was incredibly moving. I loved Grace of course, and although the supernatural/ch [...]


  • When I first read the synopsis of this book I was about to pass it up. After witnessing the deaths of both of my parents as well as both of my in-laws, I did not want to relive that pain.

  • This was a free read from xoxoafterdark. This was a very sad but uplifting story. How a husband and wife madly in love with each other have to fight a debilitating disease multiple sclerosis. This story showed that no matter what love will conquer all and that you can find and make friends in the most unusual way. If you don't believe in prayer you will after reading this.



  • "The Healing" is a beautifully-written, poignant story of the power of family, and the triumph of love and hope over adversity. The story is inspirational, and absolutely worth reading!




  • Poignant look at the life of a husband and wife who become patient and caregiver. A must for anyone who finds themselves in this situation!


  • This book was phenomenal. Fran is a very gifted writer. The message in the story was so powerful. You will never want it to end.
