About the Book

The Healer

A gorgeous and heartrending novel about love, family, and faith, perfect for fans of Laura Ruby, John Corey Whaley, and Jandy Nelson.

Marlena Oliveira has --- mysteriously, miraculously --- been given the power to heal all kinds of ailments. People around the world believe she is a saint. But it all comes at a price. Because of her power, she’ll never be able to live a normal life. And the older she gets, the more trapped she feels.

Then she meets Finn, a boy who makes her want to fall in love. For the first time, she begins to doubt her power --- and herself. Is her gift worth all she must give up to keep it? And who would --- or could ---she be without it?
