Publisher's Summary

When advertising executive Erica Whittaker is diagnosed with terminal cancer, western medicine fails her. The only hope left for her to survive is controversial healer Arpan. She locates the man whose touch could heal her, but finds he has retired from the limelight and refuses to treat her. Erica, consumed by stage four pancreatic cancer, is desperate and desperate people are no longer logical nor are they willing to take no for an answer.
Arpan has retired for good reasons, casting more than the shadow of a doubt over his abilities. So begins a journey that will challenge them both as the past threatens to catch up with him as much as with her. Can he really heal her? Can she trust him with her life? And will they both achieve what they set out to do, before running out of time?

What would YOU do to save your life?

What made the experience of listening to The Healer the most enjoyable?

The voice of the narrator made for a very engaging experience

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The story was steady paced - not an action packed thriller, but well written so you have to keep reading (listening). Emotionally, there were ups and downs and I felt so bad for Erica. Who to trust? Who is telling you the truth?

Which character – as performed by Georgina Tate – was your favorite?

I loved Erica. The narrator's voice was exactly as I pictured the character in my mind. Of course, Julia's voice fit perfectly with her dastardly character

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Very much so. Time constraints prohibited that, but it is a beautiful and thought provoking story.

Any additional comments?

After reading this book, I'm left asking myself, "If you thought you were going to die from cancer, how far would you go for the chance at healing? Would you step outside the conventional lines? Would you venture to the unknown to do it?"

The Healer swept me off my feet immediately.

What made the experience of listening to The Healer the most enjoyable?

The story is engaging and I was instantly involved in the drama. I love the authors use of language and natural dialog. I was entertained, emotionally involved and intrigued. The characters were believable and I listened with great interest. I had no idea where this story would take me but I was curious right away.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Healer?

I loved when Erica was able to meet Arpan, the Healer for the first time. We didn't know what to expect. It was a great scene that I could visualize as I listed to the narrator who did a very natural job of making me feel I was hearing this story from a character from the story rather than just a reader.

Which scene was your favorite?

I don't want to ruin the ending but it was very satisfying. I so badly wanted the healer to be able to cure Erica and I wanted the elixir to be a miracle cure.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I loved this story and found it inspirational even though we are dealing with life and death. The messages were strong and made me think about my own life.

Any additional comments?

Mr. Fischer's passion comes across in his writing as well as his attention to the human spirit. He writes with his heart and moves me as a reader.
