from the back of the book:
Claire Boehning's medical career is just about to blossom when her brilliant husband, Addison, makes a breakthrough medical discovery. His biotech start-up strikes gold, and their family is catapulted into a life of luxury. Claire eventually drifts from medicine and decides to leave her promising career behind to be a stay-at-home mother. However, a risky gamble on a new cancer drug soon sends the couple into irreparable debt, and now they must move their family to a dilapidated farmhouse is rural Hallum, Washington. Claire must go back to work, but her only offer for employment comes from a struggling public health clinic. There, she gets more than a second chance at medicine when she meets Miguela, a Nicaraguan refugee on a secret quest to find the family she has lost. As their friendship develops, a new mystery unfolds that threatens to destroy Claire's family and forces her to questions what it truly means to heal. Healer exposes the vulnerabilities of the American family, provoking questions of choice versus fate, desire versus need, and the duplicitous power of money.

Claire & Addison's way of living is flipped up-side-down when Addison's research drug lab losing all it's funding. While Addison tries desperately to find new financial backers, Claire is slowing trying to piece together a new life for her family with great resistance from their teenage daughter. Moving to a small town, finding a job, and making new friends are just the first steps to get their lives back on track. Just as it looks like Addison has found a new financial backer new information comes to light that has Claire and Addison questioning everything they thought they knew.

Healer is a slow dance you want to cling onto for the rest of the night. It is beautifully written and left me wanting more.

I like this author's writing style. It keeps the reader wanting more. The main storyline centers around Claire trying to put her family's life back together in a small town after they lose all their money. The secondary storyline addresses undocumented migrant workers, their need for health care and the ways they are taken advantage of by those who "employ" them.
