Reviews - What do customers think about Wounded Healer?

Good Read!  Jul 5, 2012
Two best friends and a war that bonded them. Chris and Erin seem like opposites but yet these two best friends help each other through some rough times.
Reading about women in Desert Storm was a lot different than reading about men in a war.
Chris and Erin parted ways in a scene with no goodbyes. But with no one else to turn to in a time of crisis...Chris runs to her friend, Erin, in Colorado.
Chris seems to panic quite a bit and I think that Ms. Fleisher is trying to show the reader that when one doesn't believe in God and trust in Him then there seems to be no hope. . . no help. It's brings to mind that little saying: "No God, No Peace. Know God, Know Peace."
Now, Erin on the other hand, shows faith and tries to get Chris interested in God's ways not just her own strength.
Sometimes it takes a crisis for some people to turn to God...this seems to be the way for Chris.
An interesting, fast paced, fiction read about faith, friendship and feelings.
 
Masterfully Written  Nov 18, 2006
Chris McIntyre, has run away from all her difficulties. A veteran medic of Operation Desert Storm, she has tried to hide in a Colorado mountain cabin, shunning all who care for her. When her friend Travis Novak is killed while trying to rescue her from an escaped convict who stumbled into her cabin, she is hardened even more.Erin Mathis was Chris's friend and fellow soldier not so many years ago. There lives had gone in different directions after the war. Hearing of Travis's death, Erin is drawn to help Chris who has steeped to the depths of despair. Can she help her friend who pushes every hope away? Who only wants to die and is hurrying her wish along through alcohol abuse? It will take the power of God to heal this wounded heart.Donna Fleischer is not only a gifted story teller, but writes what she knows. A U.S. veteran herself, her military scenes are believable. Strong characters, fast paced action, and a riveting story make this book a must read.

 
Compelling  Oct 23, 2006
Donna's first novel is an exceptional blend of action and suspense, palpable emotions, devoted friendship and the faithfulness of God.

Christina McIntyre is a wounded soul, both from childhood secrets and her life as a soldier in Iraq. A fledgling friendship with fellow soldier, Erin Grayson, develops but is soon tested by tragedy in combat and Chris disappears to the mountains of Colorado, seeking the anonymity she prefers. Erin knows God has placed a burden for Chris on her heart and her faithfulness to that call puts her at odds with her protective husband, Scott. When Chris' life is shattered by another tragic loss, Erin brings a broken Chris into her home and and shows her what true compassion is.

Donna Fleisher's sensitive characterization draws you into the lives of Chris, Erin and the eclectic group of people in the Kimberley Street Community Centre where Erin works and lives. The relationships are genuine and full of the realities of what life is really about. A fantastic start to a compelling series.
 
Amazing characters  Oct 19, 2005
WOUNDED HEALER by Donna Fleisher (Homeland Heroes, book 1)

From the back cover:
Flooded with panic, two words burst through Erin's mind: GET HELP. She ran for the door, but someone grabbed her, twisted her arm behind her. Erin's shriek was smothered by a cold, clammy hand.

"Shhh--" Breath tickled her ear--" Just take it easy . . ."

Surrounded by the oppressive sand, heat, and tension of Operation Desert Storm, soldiers Erin Grayson and Christina McIntyre shared a special bond. But when an ugly secret from Chris's past shattered without even a good-bye.

Four years have gone by since that day in the desert, but Chris has spent her entire life running from the past, hiding her deepest secrets from those who care for her most. And now tragedy has ripped apart her life. She sees no hope in tomorrow.

Overcoming her own anger and doubt, Erin rushes to Chris's Colorado cabin. When Chris's fear of God and Erin's faith in him collide, they are involved in a different kind of war that only one of them can win. As Chris wrestles with grief, fear, and ghosts from the past, Erin fights to pull her from the brink of self-destruction. She will not lose Chris again.

Chris's life is at stake...as well as her soul.

Camy here:
This amazing novel starts off with a suspenseful bang, but it's a deeply emotional book on friendship and trust. It's a more unusual women's fiction novel, involving more action than I've seen in other books, but I enjoy that aspect of this.

The writing grabbed me by the throat. Powerful, vibrant, gritty.

Characterization is deep like still waters. Everyone is unique, whether it's the protagonist or someone with only ten pages of screen time. Chris is vividly three-dimensional, strong and memorable. Erin is consistent and markedly different from her friend. I would have liked to see more grit in her, also, but it almost doesn't fit with her softer personality.

The faith element is a major story thread, and it's done with a skilled hand, one of the best I've seen in Christian fiction. Chris's struggles are honest and real.

My biggest objection was the overprotective, hostile nature of Erin's husband. I felt angry and disgusted at how he jumps to conclusions about Chris, which would naturally feed her rebellious nature. But I guess that also means the writer did her job, since I care about Chris and feel strongly about Scott. I also see how the author is setting the scene for the next book in the series, WARRIOR'S HEART, where Chris and Scott are the main protagonists.

It also bothered me how everyone around Erin sympathizes with her and feels sorry about how Chris hurts her. No one even thinks about the underlying issues Chris is dealing with--they all rally around Erin, treat her like the victim, bemoan her loyalty to someone who lashes out at her. Erin cries a LOT. However, my bias could also be because I relate more to Chris--wounded and angry--than Erin, who's had less trials in her life.

The author's experiences in Desert Storm lend authenticity to the flashback settings. I felt as if I were there, in the helicopter, in the barracks.

This is a great story with memorable characters.
 
Terrific story!  Jul 23, 2005
Sometimes there are people functioning around us who are terribly wounded inside. Donna Fleisher reveals such a person in Chris McIntyre, a Colorado Search & Rescue worker, tormented by her childhood, her Desert Storm service, and her present. Through the plot twists, we understand some of what made Chris who she is, and are given the opportunity to she who she can become. It's refreshing to find a book that doesn't reveal all, nor does it try to wrap everything up in a neat package. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
 
Awesome Read  Jul 11, 2005
Wow! Donna Felisher takes you right to the soul of Chris McIntyre, an emotionally wounded veteran of Desert Storm. Chris battles her feelings of self-worth and past pain. Her best friend, Erin, stays by her, through Chris's drinking and violence, always loving, always showing God's love. This book is a must read. - author of Pursued By Evil and A Dream Fulfilled
