Healing Promises: Review and Giveaway

This week's CFBA Tour focuses on Amy Wallace's latest book Healing Promises. I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in the series, but I have to tell you Healing Promises hit a whole new level of depth and intensity.

Clint Rollins is a FBI agent who is used to having his life firmly under control. His wife Sarah is the same way. As an oncologist, she is used to doing everything she can to help patients and then focus on her family. But their worlds are as tightly controlled as possible for a FBI agent and oncologist. Then Clint is shot. And in a day their lives are turned upside down.

This book is a study of how we respond when life treats us in ways that we can't control or anticipate.

The full range of characters is back from the first book. And Amy does a masterful part of weaving the characters together in a strong web. The book is fully fleshed out, and the suspense element is very well constructed. This book has depth on soooo many levels.

I highly recommend it -- and am delighted to be able to give a copy away. Leave a comment to be entered in the contest. And I'll pull a winner next week.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Facing a new threat.

When FBI Agent Clint Rollins takes a bullet during a standoff, it might just save his life. But not even the ugly things he’s seen during his years working in the Crimes Against Children Unit could prepare him for the overwhelming powerlessness of hospital tests revealing an unexpected diagnosis. If only Sara weren’t retreating into doctor mode…he needs his wife now more than ever.

Frozen in fear.

Sara Rollins is an oncologist with a mission–beating cancer when she can, easing her patients’ suffering at the very least. Now the life of her tall Texan husband is at stake. She never let the odds steal her hope before, but in this case, the question of God’s healing promises is personal. Can she hold on to the truth she claimed to believe?

Faith under fire.

As Clint continues to track down a serial kidnapper despite his illness, former investigations haunt his nightmares, pushing him beyond solving the case into risking his life and career. Clint struggles to believe God is still the God of miracles. Especially when he needs not one, but two. Everything in his life is reduced to one all-important question: Can God be trusted?
