The Healer, Brides of Alba by Linda Windsor

Healer: A Novel
Book Description:  Sixth-century Scotland—in the time of Arthur….

“The Gowrys’ seed shall divide your mighty house and bring a peace beyond the ken of your wicked soul.”
Her mother’s dying prophecy to the chieftain Tarlach O’Byrne sentenced Brenna of Gowrys to twenty years of hiding. Twenty years of being hunted—by the O’Byrnes, who fear the prophecy, and by her kinsmen, who expect her to lead them against their oppressors. But Brenna is a trained and gifted healer, not a warrior queen. So she lives alone in the wilderness with only her pet wolf for company. When she rescues a man badly wounded from an ambush, she believes he may be the answer to her deep loneliness. Healing him comes as easy as loving him. But can their love overcome years of bitterness and greed…and bring peace and renewed faith to the shattered kingdom?

My Review:  I've read about every book that Linda Windsor has written.  She is a favorite author of mine.  Healer takes place during a time of knights, honor and, of course, the evil "BAD GUY."  The "BAD GUY", Tarlach, wants revenge.  He, also, doesn't want Brenna's family to be a part of this world; therefore, Brenna, has been in hiding since diaperhood because both of her parents were killed by Talrach.  Brenna has become a loner.  Learning to be healer.  (My definition of the title Healer in this story is what we would call a nurse/doctor today---one who takes care of people and helps them to heal). Brenna lives in hiding with only the company of her pet wolf. Finding an.almost.deadman, Brenna rescues him.  Thus, begins Brenna's story.  With the O'Byrne's fighting her kinsman, her kinsmen expect her to save them but she heals people, not fights or wounds them for she is a healer by trade not a warrior queen.   Brenna travels a precarious road trying to find true love, being hunted by the O'Byrne's and then finding the One who loves her most.  A four star interesting and captivating read!  If you enjoy books about medieval times be sure to check out this new read Healer!
