Editorial Reviews

Review

Named a quarter-finalist in The Booklife Prize 2017 Contest with an 8 out of 10 score!
...This satisfying novel has a traditional romance plot, but infuses it with a depth and introspection that keeps the story fresh. No space is wasted on tangents, and the plot comes to a gratifying climax. 
- The Booklife Prize 2017

The Art of Healing delivered more than romance. Julianne and Jokob offered me a journey of the heart and soul. I couldn't put it down through their different levels of loss and love, ranging from romantic to family to friendship. My heart broke and healed until I lost count, but I trusted my driver and held on for the ride.
  
I easily connected with Julianne's reluctance to fall in love again after Clay. Her situation gave adage to the saying, "You think you know someone." Betrayal, for me, is difficult to overcome, and it's not about holding grudges, or even seeking revenge. She had given up her dreams because she loved him and he destroyed everything they'd built together, along with her heart. In those ways, I saw myself in Julianne and I had to see her to the finish. 
  
Jokob's loss of the woman he loved was both devastating and moving. I've known death in its many forms, but the choice she made is not among them. Oh, I understood Keara's decision. I'm a mother and would do anything for my children. Still, my heart broke for her repeatedly, and through that pain, I understood Jokob. He is me, and I am him, stuck on the sidelines and rooting for a life that cannot be saved. His anguish radiated in my own heart. Honestly, I didn't fathom how he'd be able to love again, but I tightened my seatbelt. I was in capable hands. I remember repeating the mantra while reading, still unable to walk away from the story.
  
Sharing a meal with a best friend, sitting around a large table while your poppy tells stories from the old country, or sipping a glass of wine in a dark corner of a romantic restaurant brings joy to life in small doses. That is The Art of Healing, for me; life's small pleasures lift me from fog and gloom.
  
However, stories require conflict and tension. Author Jeanne Felfe delivered a torrent that left me speechless, white knuckled and gripping the safety bar, yet all the while cheering. Raging storms raced my heart, deep depression spoke volumes to me, accidents left me wondering if they had a chance to survive separately, let alone together, and sudden sickness drowned Jokob and Julianne. 
  
Few stories deliver an array of emotions so real that my tears shed, I laugh aloud, or I allow my simmering blood to boil. Healing is truly an art, a process that has no right or wrong, and no matter how many times I read it, The Art of Healing never stops mending my broken heart.
- Heather Rexon-Capewell, Editor

From the Author

The Art of Healing was a labor of love that took almost three years to complete. It began as a short story and grew during the July Camp NaNoWriMo. As the story progressed into a novel, the characters became a daily part of my life. I love them and will miss them.

The title, The Art of Healing, while it certainly fits the theme of this love story between two broken people who must heal in order to love again--held a deeper meaning for me personally. It reflected a healing of my own.

Will there be second book with these characters? That all depends on them and whether they insist there's more to tell about their love story.
