    this book was about faith and science and love mixed in. I love that she tried living life and found love. I also that faith and healing were brought up too. Overall I enjoyed this book very much. ...

    This was a good read, but the overall story felt like their were pieces missing. I wanted to know sooooo much more about Marlena's mother, and how not only her grandparents but how her father died. I wanted to know a lot more, and found myself frustrated at the lack of clarity. On the ...

    ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. I can't. I just can't seem to finish this book. It's boring me so much it took this long for me to DNF this. So, yeah, I'm not rating this cause that seems unfair of me if I didn't even finish it. ...

    The Healer is a compelling and unique book. It is a very different coming of age story, yet despite Marlena?s special abilities that set her apart in the world, her story of falling in love for the first time, discovering who she is and is meant to be and learning to stand up for her...

    I read some other works by this author that I liked, but I was still pleasantly surprised by her foray into a very unique genre. This book deals with Marlena, a teenaged girl, who from birth has possessed this remarkable power of healing. At age 18 however, she is sick of it. Sick o...

    The exploration of self and of life was enthralling. I did skim over a couple scenes for sexual content, though. ...

    Thank you to Edelweiss and the publisher for the E-arc copy of The Healer. I am not usually one for books in a religious subject matter, but I found this one really interesting. Donna Freitas is an excellent storyteller and The Healer is a showcase of her talent. Marlena, the main char...

    I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest reviews. I have read books like this before but not to this extent. I know that she feels like she has to live by a lot of rules and the one that seems to be the most challenging is the one to not fall in love. That is when she meets...

    Ever since she was young, Marlena has possessed a mysterious and miraculous gift- she can cure any illness, heal anyone. But her blessing is a curse and because of it, she?s told she can never live a normal life. But when she meets a scientist, and her cute assistant Finn, everything...

    At 18, Marlena had yet to attend school, go to a dance, or get her first kiss. She had been kept separate from the world and revered for her gift as a healer. Tired of living in her "saint" bubble, she rebelled, and began stretching her wings a little, as she attempted to discover who ...

    Marlena is a healer - a living saint. People come from far and wide to be healed by her, the small town she lives in makes their living off selling souvenirs with her image, and her mother has shaped Marlena's entire life around her identity as a child with a gift from God. Marlena has...

    Thank you Edelweiss and Harper Teen for gifting me an E-ARC in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own. I rate this book a 3.5 out of 5 Stars. This was a great YA book. It is hard to pin point this genre, it's kind of several genres mashed into one book, and while t...
