What did you like best about The Irish Healer? What did you like least?
Beautiful prose, dialogue and plot from the writer until character challenges and growth are replaced by the christian god who solves all. Characters don't call upon their own inner strength to overcome mountains and face responsibility. They remain weak and pray to their god to fix it all. What a disappointing end to a wonderful story. Prosletyzing at the expense of character development is a huge disappointment. BUT christians will love it, I'm sure.Is it possible for audible to put a religious tag on appropriate books please so that readers can make a knowing choice.
Would you recommend The Irish Healer to your friends? Why or why not?
No - they feel as I do about prosletyzing. We all find no challenge in prayer and god fixes all. We believe the characters have to fix themselves.
What about Amanda McKnight’s performance did you like?
Oh - that was perfect! Truly outstanding. I do hope that I will find her reading other books. Her voice remained at the same volume whilst the tone, inflections and pitch altered and that maintained an interest and awareness of the population within the story. There wasn't a single moment that I was jarred out of the story by this reader.
Could you see The Irish Healer being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Yes. The writing is excellent and gives clear snapshots of locations and people.
Any additional comments?
Please make preachy books identifiable. A book I loved, I couldn't finish because the characters were exactly the same at the end as they were at the beginning. Their only difference is that they found a god that enabled them to take no responsibility for anything that had come before or since. When a character is relieved of taking responsibility, that character doesn't grow. It achieves nothing.

Loved this story. It was beautifully unfolded by the author. So much anticipation about what would happen next. Great narrator as well.
